Costa Del Sol markets give you the chance to buy everything from local made arts and crafts to fake designer watches, handbags and clothes.
The rastro market next to the Puerto Banus bullring on a Saturday is more geared for the tourists with hardly any fresh food on sale, while the more traditional markets in places like Marbella and San Pedro have a large selection of fresh fruitherbs, spices and vegetables stalls. The outdoor markets do not sell fresh meat or fish.
To save me listing every opening and closing time it is safe to assume that all the markets operate between 9:00am-2:00pm. Some may open half hour earlier some close at 2:30pm.
If it is raining the larger stall holders generally have some sort of cover and set up in the hope that it will clear up later. If you would like more information on Costa Del Sol Temperatures we provide a breakdown for the year.
In addition to the list of Markets below this guide contains information on the four main shopping centres for the Costa del Sol Plaza Mayor just outside Malaga Airport, the Miramar centre in Fuengirola, La Canada in Marbella and Marina Banus in Puerto Banus. There is also a large,impressive and newly opened Ambrosia Gourmet Food Market which is open daily selling fish, meats and tapas on the outskirts of Puerto Banus.
