Christmas Traditional Nights

The true Madeiran Christmas traditions

The true Madeiran Christmas traditions are shown in different locations throughout the island on different dates. The most well-known is the market night at the Farmers’ Market in Funchal on the 23rd of December. Many locals come from all parts of the island to do their Christmas shopping at the market stalls – selling fruit, vegetables, mistletoe and wheat pots amongst other Christmas treats. The highpoint of the evening is the carol singing in the fish market square. It all ends in the early hours of the morning, sharing the best stories of the year and old acquaintances with homemade liquors and traditional sandwiches of “carne de vinha d’alhos” (pork cubes in wine and garlic).
