A Trip To The Market


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.



For residents and holiday makers alike a weekly trip to the nearest local market is a part of the lifestyle here in Almeria.

Market sellers tend to set up their stalls early in the morning and they continue selling until 1pm.
