Inspired by local food markets found in the Azores and other Portuguese communities, the Marketplace offers fresh fruit and produce, specialty groceries and various meats, salted cod, cheese, seafood, and beer and wine.

Please note that this event is for LSC Alumni and current class members.

During the visit you’ll get a chance to:

  • Be transported to the local food markets of the Azores through a guided tour of the Marketplace.
