The city centre has everything you would expect to find in a popular commercial city centre, including a wide variety of fashion shops, perfume and cosmetic shops, well-stocked wine shops, several pharmacies and home furnishing stores; all of which are within a very comfortable walking distance of each other.
Food shopping in Faro is easy as there is a good selection of supermarkets to choose from that stock most things you are likely to want.
Forum Algarve Shopping Mall is easy to find being on the main road (EN125) into Faro from Faro airport. The shops are along covered galleries around an open central square with cafes and outside seating – great for a rest in the sunshine before hitting the shops again! There is plenty of car-parking if you are driving. There are shops for everything – accessories, jewellers, home furnishings, sports equipment, fashion, electrical, cosmetics, perfumes, pet shops, and toys to name but a few! There are also hairdressers, opticians, chemist, travel agents, dry cleaners and banks and of course, a large Jumbo Supermercado for all your food shopping.
