NIGHT AT THE MAR­KET

GOLFE - - TOP GIFTS -

Mar­ket Night is held on De­cem­ber 23rd, when Madeirans do their last-minute Christ­mas shop­ping and it is in this hus­tle and bus­tle that the spirit of the “Festivity” can best be felt, the nick­name given by the Madeirans to iden­tify Christ­mas.

The in­hab­i­tants move to­wards the Fun­chal’s Farm­ers’ Mar­ket where the sur­round­ing streets, which are closed to traf­fic, are occupied by var­i­ous points of sale opened through­out the night.

A Noite do Mer­cado re­al­iza-se no dia 23 de dezem­bro, quando os madeirense­s efe­t­uam as úl­ti­mas com­pras de Natal e é nesta azáfama que mel­hor se sente o espírito da “Festa”, des­ig­nação con­ferida pelo povo madeirense ao Natal.

Os habi­tantes deslo­cam-se até ao Mer­cado dos Lavradores no Fun­chal onde as ruas cir­cun­dantes, que se en­con­tram encer­radas ao trân­sito, são ocu­padas por diver­sos pos­tos de venda aber­tos du­rante toda a noite.
