Parque Atlantico

The best shopping place in the Azores, if you want to find almost all of the souvenirs for which the islands are famous, is the modern Parque Atlantico mall in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island. There are 104 stores, and a giant supermarket which sells traditional jams and Azorean honey.

Shopping

Popular souvenirs in the Azores include ceramic items such as hand-painted clay dishes, vases, teapots and mugs, as well as embroidery and hand-woven blankets, sweaters and other items. Azorean wickerwork, mainly baskets and furniture, has recently grown in reputation, as has Azorean wine, making them popular souvenirs and gifts.
