I am looking for places to buy inexpensive Portuguese table wines in Fall River & New bedford. I know about Seabra's, but would like to explore some other places when I go down there.

I am really looking for cheap wines, hoping to find some good value wines.

Any thoughts appreciated....

    Chaves Market in Fall River has a good selection of Portuguese 5 liter bottles (with a cork) that run around $17
    I usually get the Adao 5 liter
    they also have a modest selection of other Portuguese wines including Ports in 5ths
    very reasonable prices overall

    Chaves Market
    49 Columbia Street
