Couple of questions

Hi folks, just a couple of off-the-wall questions....

Are "flea markets" a thing in Portugal, especially in the larger towns/cities?

Are screens for doors and windows available, either pre-made or just the screen material so screens can be made to fit? We love fresh air and having a nice breeze flowing through the house, but would be happier without the addition of flies and other critters.

Thanks in advance!

I see that you found a reply, but for anyone else - yes flea markets are a thing! usually on Sundays and alternate (for example ours is on 3rd Sunday each month). If anyone wants specific details on particular towns/cities, just ask - there are lots of knowledgeable people here!

The name for flea markets can be:

feira da ladra

feira de velharias-antiguidades

feira de bagageira

so look out for these being publicised

There are places that make fly screens also, depending on your area or DIY places usually have them such as Leroy Merlin. Here's an example:
