Time Out Market was first launched in Lisbon in 2014 to provide a comprehensive showcase of the city’s notable features and attractions, often featured in the pages of their magazine. The ultimate goal was to create an immersive destination capturing the essence of Lisbon’s culture and dynamic offerings. Due to its growing popularity, Time Out Market subsequently opened in Boston, Chicago, New York, Montreal and Dubai.
