Costa del Sol Markets

Throughout the Costa del Sol resorts you can find a different market to visit every day of the week. These photos are from market held in Benalmadena every Friday and Sunday near the Tivoli fair ground. The markets usually start quite early in the mornings and start to pack up their stalls early afternoon. So its always best to get there as early as possible, as some of them are quite large and you may not get chance to get all the way round before they close.

Some of the best buys are the brightly coloured Spanish ceramics, these always look good displayed on a kitchen shelf. Also many stalls sell clothing and accessories from the high street stores back home, these stalls are very popular with the expats living out here.

Here is a list of the most popular markets held....

Monday - Marbella

Tuesday - Fuengirola

Wednesday - Benalmadena nr Paloma Park. (flea market)

Thursday - Torremolinos

Friday - Benalmadena-Tivoli & Paloma Park

Saturday - Puerto Banus, Fuengirola (flea market)
