Open air markets are held in most of the main towns and villages throughout the province of Almeria. The bustling and colourful stalls offer a lively atmosphere to do a weekly shop.
Stalls include fresh local produce as well as household items and clothing. The many fruit and vegetable stalls are colourful and offer a wide choice, with a selection of seasonal and year round fruit and veg. And if you like olives, hams and olive oil then there are many stalls that to take your pick from.
