Grocery stores in the Bairro Alto

This is our first trip to Lisbon. We have rented an apartment for a week at the end of March. The apartment is in Bairro Alto on Rua do Norte. We plan to eat out frequently, but would like to have on hand coffee, wine (port!), and we may wish to have dinner in a night or two. When we have traveled in the past and rented apartments, we have looked for local food markets or delis to buy cheeses, olives, sometimes roast chicken or other tasty take-away treats. Can anyone recommend any places in Bairro Alto near Rua do Norte?

You'll have a daily fresh food market at Rua da Atalaia (200m or less from Rua do Norte). I'm sure that there'll be also local groceries if not you can go to Baixa (Rossio) area and there you'll find a few supermarkets (like Pingo Doce at Rua 1º Dezembro).

You can also check the "Amanhecer" grocery store, where Rua dos Correeiros meets Rua da Conceição.

Hi MartaD

Try the small supermarket in front of rua da Rosa, next to the elevador da bica.

Have a nice Trip

You may think that this is a hideous idea, but you could get the Metro from Baixa-Chiado to Colégio Militar/Luz and go to the Colombo shopping centre. I spent two weeks in Lisbon, mostly eating in at our apartment, and this was where we did most of our shopping. It was fine for us, but it may not suit your needs if you are a real food expert.
