SHOP IN FAIAL

Start getting settled

We are here for almost two weeks and start getting settled. We had the luck to buy our house fully furnished, so no problem...

SHOP IN FAIAL

When shopping in Faial, you need to keep in mind that all goods need to be shipped from the continent and supply ships are only arriving once or twice a week. There are a couple of well stocked supermarkets. It might happen though, that even in the largest one sometimes runs of of certain products. If you forgot to bring some special equipment or even some pieces of clothing, there is a big chance that you will not find it in Faial. So make sure to pack your suitcase properly. You will find some well equipped special stores for yacht and sailing equipment. There are also some Chinese supermarkets where you find a full range of everyday goods. If you are looking for any chance for agricultural equipment or tools, these you can find easily in the specialized shops.

People of Faial are used to life with the limited availability of certain goods and do not have a problem ordering it on internet and wait for a couple of weeks until they arrive, that’s how the life on a remote island is.
