Nowadays the street markets in the different towns of the province of Malaga and the Costa del Sol are becoming more and more popular with residents and tourists. Here you can find designer and second-hand clothes, decorative objects, jewellery, accessories, fruit, vegetables, plants; all kinds of products at very good prices, accompanied by workshops and even live music.
Specifically, in Marbella, a city known for its elegance, luxury and the exclusive boutiques of Puerto Banús, it is more frequent every day to attend one of its many markets. An ideal place for the whole family not to be missed. Would you like to know which are the most outstanding?
We are going to tell you which are the most outstanding ones.
Every Monday from 8.00 to 15.00 on the Avenida José Manuel Vallés one of the biggest street markets of the city and the Costa del Sol is held in the fairgrounds, the main market of Marbella with more than 360 stalls where you can find any product; food, footwear, clothing, accessories, among many others.
It is a typical neighbourhood market where it is advisable to walk from the centre or use public transport as it is very difficult to find parking.
On the third Saturday of each month, on Paseo Ramón Garzón from 10.00 to 14.00, the Guadalhorce Ecológico Association organises a network of farmers’ markets with the direct sale of their products, grown organically in Málaga. This promoting the habit of healthy consumption and forming a meeting place among them.
To get there, public transport is advisable, but there is a parking close to the area.
One of the most famous street markets in the city, especially in summer, where you can find everything you need, clothes, vegetation, spices, accessories, handicrafts, etc, at very good prices and of great quality.
It is held every Saturday from 8.00 to 15.00 in the morning, very close to Puerto Banús, in the surroundings of the bullring.
The best way to visit it is to use public transport, but there are also public parkings in the area of Puerto Banús and you can take a walk to get there.
Every Sunday from 12.00 to 18.00 there is a small but very nice flea market on the first line of the harbour, overlooking the famous yachts. At this market you will find all kinds of handicraft products and some rarities.
As it takes place in the harbour, there are several public car parks, so you can come by car as well as by bus.
Every summer day in the Plaza Antonio Banderas a market is held, known as the best craft market in the country, where we can find an international sample of artisan products. It has more than 100 exhibitors. You can also enjoy a great gastronomic offer and live music.
The best way to get there is by public transport, as parking in this area is difficult to find, but there is a public parking, which is a little more expensive than usual.
In the upper part of the city, one of the city’s liveliest street markets takes place every Thursday, in the area of the fairgrounds. You can find everything you are looking for, from clothes and footwear to music and food. A good opportunity to enjoy a typical Andalusian village.
Difficult area to find parking, although you can always come by public transport.
An unique opportunity to enjoy being in an old village, with cobbled streets and balconies full of flowers in the urbanisation of La Virginia, which takes place a couple of times a year, in spring and Christmas.
The market offers a wide range of stalls selling home-made food, decorations, the latest fashion and design, accessories and even live music. The most popular items are Borsalino and Panama hats.
If you get there early, you’ll probably find a parking spot, or you can take a taxi, as there is no bus service to the area.
On Avenida Bulevar Príncipe Alfonso de Hohenlohe we find a flea market on Marbella’s Golden Mile, with 18 stalls full of a wide variety of items, jewellery and accessories. Its main feature is that while shopping you can enjoy live music with a very popular dj.
This place being in a very busy area, it is very difficult to find parking, so it is more convenient to go by taxi or bus, as there is a line that leaves you very close to the avenue.
A street market for every day of the week, with all kinds of products, but if you want to know or attend other markets and another city nearby, we recommend Ronda, where we offer these types of tours:
