Local Commerce and Traditional Products

Given the importance of traditional commerce, as well as the determination of the Arraiolos Town Council to contribute to the development of the municipality, initiatives to boost this sector were extended to all localities. The existing local commerce deserves the full attention of the Council given its contribution to the economy of the municipality. Interventions in the Historic Centre of Arraiolos and in urban centres permit the enjoyment of a rehabilitated public space favourable to this activity.

The “Empada de Arraiolos”, or the “Arraiolos Pie”, exhibits an intimate relationship with the Cuisine of Alentejo in its preparation. Traces of a connection to the land and to the rural life of Alentejo itself. This age-old knowledge involving traditional flavours in parsley and marjoram, to name but a few of the aromatic herbs that fill our dishes with pleasant aromas, has been transmitted in various ways.
The Municipality of Arraiolos has registered the brand “Empada de Arraiolos ®” with the National Industrial Property Institute of Portugal, being its legitimate and sole proprietor, providing the municipality with a new instrument for promoting this product, endowing it with distinction.
