There are a number of small shops in Vale do Lobo, either at the Praça overlooking the sea, at the golf club/resort reception, or at the resort entrance. The nearest supermarket is by the entrance to the resort. However, the most popular local supermarket, Apolonia, is in Almancil, at the western end of town. Almancil is also home to the nearest chemist.

Alternatively you could visit Forum Algarve, which is on the outskirts of Faro, and has over 120 shops, 20 restaurants and a hypermarket. It is well worth a visit.

For those staying longer than a few days, a larger supermarket, Modelo, is on the outskirts of Loule, a market town 10km north of Almancil.
In addition, the neighbouring resort, Quinta do Lago, has extensive boutique shopping and further golf, leisure facilities, bars and restaurants.

The best and nearest market is in Quarteria on Wednesday morning. This market is excellent for cotton, linen, and leather goods. Loule also has a Saturday market of a similar nature, and a daily market serving fish and vegetables in the centre of the town.
