Costa Blanca Markets

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT DAYS MARKETS ARE ON?

Visiting the local market in the town where you live or going on holiday is the way of life on the Costa Blanca and is an experience not to be missed.

Each town has a set day of the week for which a market is held every week. If you are holiday you want to get to your local town’s market to experience a taste of Spanish culture. Below we list the various locations and their respective market day of the week.

At the local markets you can buy all your fresh produce, from fruits and vegetables in season, fish, meat, cheese, olives, nuts, eggs, clothes, shoes, belts, handbags, kitchen utensils, music cds, carpets, paintings, also items like chillies which are not readily available at the local supermarkets.

The produce is of the highest quality and much fresher than at the supermarket. Prices should be cheaper than the local supermarkets so you will see plenty of local Spanish people at the market stocking up on fruit and veg for their weeks cooking.

Calpe MarketThe Sunday markets tend to be rastro markets selling antiques, bric-a-brac and clothes. There are additional rastro markets in Calpe on Wednesday, Benidorm on Friday and Jalon on Saturday.

These rastro markets are very popular and busy. Like our boot sales back in the United Kingdom if you wish to sell unwanted items like clothes that are too small, DVDs that you are finished with.

You need to arrive by six in the morning, the first shoppers usually arrive between eight and nine in the morning and it costs around €5 for a stand or stall.

If you are a visitor to any market please be vigilant with your belongings especially your handbag.

Keep your wallet in a secured bag and if possible keep your hand on it at all times. Pick pockets abound and work in teams, don’t become a victim and enjoy this unique shopping experience instead.
