Vegan? Shop at Sapato Verde

Green Beans store

It’s never easy being vegan. Being vegan in Portugal is certainly no exception to the rule. I’ve started making changes to my life that have meant I’m slowly adopting a more vegan lifestyle, not only when it comes to food, but also to clothing and household and beauty products. I was so pleased when I discovered a vegan store in Lisbon that embraced the vegan way of life: Sapato Verde that I couldn’t help but share it with others.

Sapato Verde is located a couple of minutes’ walk up the road from the Praça Luís de Camões (Largo do Camões) in downtown Lisbon. Vegans – and those interested in exploring exciting, ethical brands – will find a little bit of everything here: you’ll find clothes and shoes, cleaning and personal hygiene products, and even a small food market at the far end of the store.

What I liked most about Sapato Verde is that they source both Portuguese and international brands. I was able to find one of my favorite vegan footwear brands, Nae, there (and yes, Nae also happens to be Portuguese!). You’ll also find other known brands such as Dr. Bronner’s. The store was started by a vegan couple (one manages food, the other everything else), so you know the brands they stock are brands they use on a daily basis.

The food market at the back is a fun spot for vegans and vegetarians looking for food alternatives that can be hard to find elsewhere. I was pleasantly surprised to find organic Portuguese wines there (what a lovely gift to take to a dinner party!). And my readers who know I have a sweet tooth know that I couldn’t resist bringing home a Vego brand chocolate bar as I’d never tried vegan chocolate before – it was actually very tasty! But why limit the vegan goodies to humans? Sapato Verde had vegan dog and cat food for your furry family members.


If you’re interested in vegan, fairtrade, or ethical products, head over to Sapato Verde in Lisbon. And please comment below if you know of any other vegan places in Portugal! I’m always curious to know more.

      It’s definitely worth stopping in if fairtrade, vegan, and ethical shopping are important to you. They’re becoming increasingly important to me 🙂
