Where to Buy Portuguese Food Online

Azulejo 10Once you have visited Portugal and discovered the wonderful cuisine available, you may find yourself missing the tastes and smells of the foods you sampled. Thankfully, the wonder of internet shopping means that we can all find somewhere to purchase some of those fabulous foods.

Perhaps you are a whizz in the kitchen and need to find traditional ingredients, perhaps you are missing the taste of home. Maybe it’s just that you can’t forget the delicate flavour of Serra de Estrella cheese. Whatever the reason, there are several good online stores which cater to Portuguese food lovers around the world.

Here is a round-up of some of the best places you can buy Portuguese food online.

Portuguese Food HamperI’ll start off with a site for those of you in the UK. Portuguese Food.co.uk is a new online shop catering specifically to the UK market. I thank my colleague at work for this one as he spotted a sticker in the back window of a car advertising the site in Manchester and knowing my endless obsession with everything Portuguese, pointed it out to me the following day!

Portuguese Food.co.uk is a Portuguese run company with a nice range of foods online. They have a good looking, easy to navigate website and a passion for Portuguese food. I emailed the owners and asked them to tell me a little more about the company. Here’s what they had to say:-

“We offer a truly unique range of High Quality and specialised produce from various regions of Portugal including our very own Home made branded goods. One such produce is pork in the form of Chorizo & Serrano Ham, which in Portugal is a tradition that has been around for hundreds of years for which Portugal is now famous. Many Portuguese families would cure the meat from a whole pig utilising every part to make a range of delicious cured chorizos packed with herbs and spices.
We supply to UK Restaurants, Hotels and various catering outlets direct from our warehouse in Portugal. We find that the customer experience brings them back for more.”

For the vegetarians amongst you, they also offer traditional sea salt, confectionary, beautiful cheeses, olives and of course olive oil. They also offer a Portuguese hamper which would make a lovely gift for your Portuguese friends who live in England.

This is an excellent new site and I imagine they will have more to offer in the future. Note that they also supply wholesale to the restaurant trade as well.

Staying in the UK for the moment, there is also a company called Supermercado Portugal.  They have a physical shop in London as well as an online shop. They stock a huge range of products from food and drink to cleaning products and supply both individuals and wholesale.

Moving on to those in the States now, there is a great website called Portuguese Food.com which has a vast range of products to choose from. If you are missing sweet bread or pasteis de nata, this is where to come. As well as stocking meats, cheeses and condiments, this company also stocks a large variety of products which would be found ‘back home’. You can also find hampers and a few kitchen items such as crockery made in traditional Portuguese style. A nice touch to this site is that they also provide a section of Portuguese recipes.

Surprisingly Amazon.com have quite a range of Portuguese foods on offer from a variety of suppliers. I’ve already done the hard work for you by scouring the site and creating a Portuguese Food section in the Store here at In Love With Lisbon.  You can wander through the virtual aisles by clicking here and then selecting ‘Gourmet Food’. 🙂

Last but not least is a site called Amarals Market. Amongst their many products is a large range of cheeses both domestic and imported. They also have a nice selection of traditional marinades and marmalades.

I hope you have enjoyed my round-up of Portuguese food retailers online. Please check the comments section below because some of my visitors have also left recommendations of other Portuguese food stores online. If you know of anywhere else, please do leave a comment.

    For all those like me who love Portuguese food there’s a great new Portuguese family run business that has recently started up called Gourmet Portugal (www.gourmetportugal.pt). They offer a fantastic range of Portuguese food sourced from all over the country – everything from wines selected from the vineyards from Ribatejo to cheeses, honey and my personal favourite, the delicious fruit jams. They sell individual products as well as hampers that make great gifts and can be sent anywhere in Europe. I bought a hamper online to send back to family in the UK recently and it went down a treat. I certainly recommend anyone in Portugal or the UK to check out what they have to offer! Gourmet Portugal hampers can be ordered online at http://www.gourmetportugal.pt or by phone on (00351) 93 965 5123 or (00351) 93 404 4085.

    Hi Anna
    Thanks for your comment! I’ve just visited the site and it looks great. I encourage my visitors here to go and take a look too. Personally I must have to order some quinze jam. I haven’t had this for years! Obrigada x

    Lucky me I’m portuguese and had the opportunity to taste everything for 25 years! :op But now that I moved to the other side of the world (Seattle) I find it very hard to get portuguese food. There is only one store in downtown Seattle called The Spanish Table (www.spanishtable.com), and yes it’s almost everything from Spain but they have some portuguese products and they sell online too… Other than that I have to go to Vancouver B.C. to actually find a restaurant and some wholesale stores or a bakery!
    Thank you so much for your research, and I hope you can get to know Porto, where I was born, i don’t think you’ve been there yet otherwise your website would be called In Love With Oporto… (there has always been a lot of rivalry between Oporto and Lisbon…) :op

    Hi Monica
    Theres not many places where I live in the UK either to buy Portuguese food – just a little shop in the local market that sells Bacalhau. I hope to go to Porto too – it does look very beautiful as well 🙂

    hi!
    whilst searching online for portuguese food for this christmas (to be spent in the UK), i came across a website called fishfanatics.co.uk where you can order bacalhau (salt cod) from. It isn’t cheap, but as this is apparently an endangered species and actually quite expensive in Portugal too, seems like a good option.
    there is also an info hotline info@fishfanatics.co.uk or 0870 7444110.
    I’m ordering mine today and will let you know how good it is.
    Excellent site by the way 🙂
    Good luck on your exams!

    Bacalhau, Quiejo Topo, linguica, Chourico, Portuguese Sardines, Azeite Portugues.. and much more.

    Interested in finding the nearest place to buy samp and linguica & chourica in the seattle area. I usually buy gaspar linguica from mass. Too expensive. the sausage usually isn’t too difficult to get but the samp is. Pike market has the bacalhau.

    Anyone that can help me to get a hold of portogise chocolate 70%, also condenced milk, minced meat and lovely yummy portoguise cheese mmmmm

    also the portoguise chocolate moose is so much better than the norwegian one so what kind of chocloate do you use and what is it that makes it more sticky rather than so airy?

      Hi Rebecca
      I haven’t bought Ginjinha in the UK. Where in the UK are you? There’s a Portuguese shop in Manchester where I am. Next time I go, I can check and I’ll also ask some Portuguese people I know. For the time being I found a company called Portugalia Wines online which sells Ginjinha. I haven’t used them myself however. It’s a lovely drink though!

    Hi

    Thanks for this site. lots of Portuguese foods around for those of us far away from Home. The site Portuguesefoods.co.uk is very pricey.. I think we may as well drive to the nearest shop, even if 300miles away we can save lots of money rather than paying a fortune from the above site.

    Nonetheless, this is a good initiative. It is just a pity that Portuguese food is so little on demand which makes it so pricey. If only Portuguese people were as entrepreneurs as the Polish or Asians, who have shops everywhere and make their food available.

    I have even bought Hake (pescada) from an Asian shop at £4 a kilo – amazing, and much better than the ones from Pescanova that are sold in Portuguese shops around the UK.

    Hi there! There is an online site that sells Salt Cod in the US and Canada. http://www.captainmorrissey.com . You can get split, boned, minced salt cod and they have Ramirez canned bacalhau, too! Reasonable price, but the shipping can be expensive. Friends and I got together to make an order which made the shipping cost far more affordable.

    HI Everyone,
    I’m in Dutchess County, New York. There are more and more portuguese people moving here, so I know there is a need here for a portuguese market. I’ve been doing my research on line to find a distributor of portuguese products, but can’t find anything. Does anyone know of one that can deliver to the Dutchess County area? I’d like to sell portuguese products, fresh fish, chorizo, pastries etc., Pretty much a one stop shop for all your portuguese needs.
    Please help!

    Hi everyone! I just wanna say, to those in Reading, UK (or with the possibility to travel there), there is a brand new Portuguese Restaurant called Batista’s Grill and Portuguese Cuisine. They sell all of the famous Portuguese dishes such as Bacalhau a Bras, Bitoque, Pataniscas de Bacalhau, Octopus rice and Carne de porco a Alentejana. These are just a few plus they have a grill with real charcoal! Just like in Portugal, visit, you will love it!

I found recently thes restaurant near the Smithfields Meat Market off Farrington at St John street really nice , there’s also the oldest restaurant in London near Kinghtsbridge O Fado with live fado sessions a must, not enough said!! Just drop me a line so i’m preparing myself to invade the borough mrkt soon with a missed link or gap of portuguese products !!!

    Dear Lily, Sorry I posted our website on your page. I thought this was the right place to let other people who know where to get Portuguese products when living abroad. I never realised that you obviously have business connections with Portuguesefood.co.uk and as such deleted my post. It was not my intention to “steal” custom from you but rather to offer other people choice. Good luck with your business!

      June 4, 2013 at 2:01 pm

      Paulinho – Oh goodness no, I didn’t delete it. I just hadn’t approved your comment yet! I have just approved it now. The more the merrier! It’s great to give everyone options. I’m not affiliated to Portuguesefood.co.uk. I just recommend them and others who offer Portuguese food on line so that my readers know where to find goods.
      Soyou are in the right place – I just got a little behind with my web work – apologies.

    You have a lovely blog! I live in the UK and I can easily eat Portuguese food, simply because I know how to cook it. But there is one difference between Portuguese food in Portugal and “Portuguese” food in the UK. The truth is that, in Portugal, the products have better quality. For example, there’s a traditional dish in Portugal which is bacalhau and potatoes boiled in water (with salt). These have then a little bit of olive oil to season. And that’s the real secret of Portuguese food… Simplicity! I’ve tried to cook this same dish here and the result was disappointing. The supermarkets here have olive oil with added oil. And potatoes have no taste. The same goes for fruit, meat and vegetables.
    Don’t get me wrong, I came to the UK because British people are more open minded and I love the U.K. But when you are Portuguese and you live abroad, you realize that there’s no real food anywhere else. And that other countries don’t have the basics of cooking in their traditions.

      August 9, 2014 at 3:13 pm

      Hi Carla – é verdade! The quality of food here in the UK isn’t good at all. I notice it too. Buying from small organic suppliers is better but sometimes I think we don’t have the best weather for the best crops. The simplicity is what makes Portuguese food so tasty 🙂

  38. September 6, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    http://www.sintramarket.co.uk cheaper and wider variety than supermercadoportugal for UK buyers

  39. September 17, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    Stumbled across Supermercado Portugal ( http://www.supermercadoportugal.com/ ) when looking for Portuguese online groceries. Decided to give them a go with a small order. Received it the next day ( Aberdeen) without any issues. I have also noticed they now do a full frozen range, custard tarts etc .Definitely ordering from them again soon

    The site is very easy to use, with loads of info and goodies!
    Ive bought quite a few items from them including some delicious wine, lupins and salted cod.
    Customer service is great they will help any way they can!
    I would really recommend them!
