About Us

Portugalia Marketplace is a one-of-a-kind Portuguese specialty food grocer dedicated to promoting Portuguese culture and cuisine. Founded over 30 years ago by Fernando Benevides and now run by his two children, Michael and Jennifer, the 20,000-square-foot store has become the leading provider of Portuguese specialty foods and home goods in the United States. With over 1300 different Portuguese wines and spirits, a café offering Portuguese baked goods, a prepared foods counter, and a large, temperature-controlled room for salt cod, customers can truly immerse themselves in Portuguese culture and cuisine.
In addition to our extensive selection of food and drink, Portugalia Marketplace also features the Portuguese design shop, Artigos, which sells products from established brands such as Vista Alegre as well as new and exciting designers like Casa Cubista. With fine china, handicrafts, soaps, cork objects, costume jewelry, and home furnishings, Artigos offers a diverse range of products for those looking for a touch of Portuguese style in their home. And, with the ability to ship both perishable and non-perishable products nationwide, customers can easily get their hands on the products they love, no matter where they live.
