We started in April 2016 in a first physical edition of THE SPOT MARKET in Lisbon, Amoreiras (Espaço Amoreiras), with about 40 brands from several segments. In the following years we grew a lot, set the periodicity of the market on a monthly basis (on the first or last Saturday of each month) and extended the location of the market beyond Espaço Amoreiras. We went to Cascais, Oeiras, Carcavelos, Oporto, Comporta, established partnerships with several entities and joined several events with national and international presence: The Tall Ship Races, Vogue Fashion Night Out, Volvo Ocean Race or Wonderland Lisboa, ExpoCascais, Activa - Saber Viver-Alfândega do Porto, Campus Nova SBE, among others.
We are sensitive to social causes, and in some of our physical editions we supported several associations: Rastrillo - Novo Futuro, Associação Capiti, Associação Filhos do Coração.
Our exhibitors are assorted and the areas where they work too. Fashion, Baby, Kids &Teens, Jewellery, Accessories, Footwear, Decoration, Lifestyle. We had already more than 40 physical editions and an average presence of 75 brands per edition. Since 2016, more than 500 brands have attended THE SPOT MARKET and we have known many valid people: jewellers, fashion designers, potters, artisans, producers, sustainable brands, and many other amazing brands waiting to be discovered and supported!
In March 2020, we reinvented ourselves, pioneered and launched our project THE SPOT MARKET ONLINE, as a way to support Portuguese brands in the current situation and with the existing limitations. THE SPOT MARKET ONLINE is here to stay, alongside with the physical editions as support to small and medium businesses and brands, and as requested by followers, brands and the public.
