Since going to the Algarve four years ago, a visit to this little market that's here every Wednesday is an insufferable experience for me, but not for my wife. It's almost as big as the Rastro in Madrid, and I almost always see the same things. However, this year I noticed the change in coloring of the Peruvians and Ecuadorians who decided to settle in the country. Otherwise everything is the same, including the stomping, elbowing and even some bumping into people. It was a total waste of time, but I have to deal with it as best I can.
Like in any typical tourist town, this has a pedestrian street with lots of little shops and products. There are lots of nice things from Portugal / Algarve / Albufeira, but generally they are things that you can find in most beach towns . I was surprised how many "Chinese" stores there were. I recommend that you go into Naturasia, as it is a shop in this area around the square on April 25. The address is: Av de Liberdade, nice view building 65, loja B, 8200 albufeira. This is the exact address but if you just walk down that street you will see it right away. The shop features products made with coconut roll Zen is really very nice things have animal shaped lamps made in coconut for 24 € I think, we bought one with 2 palms (I attached photo). The items there are original, not found anywhere else, the cashier also super friendly.
