Markets in Costa Blanca Spain

The Costa Blanca coast is located on the eastern coastline of Spain between the regions of the Costa Azahar and the Costa Calida. Known as the white coast this area is blessed with many sandy beaches with almost white sand and a warm climate throughout the year.

One of the other attractions of visiting this area is getting to know the Spanish people and Spanish culture. One of the best ways to do this is by visiting one of the local markets which are usually held once a week in each local town.

Because the Costa Blanca markets are held on different days of the week if one day your local one is not on, it stands to reason that not too far away there is a market which you can visit in the nearby town.

Visiting the local market on the Costa Blanca gives you the opportunity to mix with locals and practice your basic Spanish. Not only this but you get to sample the very freshest produce from the area. In particular the oranges and lemons are well-known throughout the world. There are plenty of other local goods and produce that you can buy such as wines, cherries, leather goods, paella, grapes and shoes.

Even if some of the stalls don’t necessarily stock local handmade goods, you will find a vast array of different products from throughout the world at bargain prices.

The prices at the market are usually lower than you would find in supermarkets because most of the products are grown locally and therefore there are no transportation costs.

Markets we recommend are Elche on a Monday, Alicante on Tuesday, Guardamar on a Wednesday, Javea on a Thursday, Torrevieja on Fridays and Pedreguer rastro market on a Sunday.

Whichever market you decide to visit when you are on your holiday or vacation be very careful to mind the security of your wallet. Unfortunately crowded markets are a perfect place for pickpockets to target their unassuming victims who are otherwise distracted having fun.
