Immerse yourself in the culture of Andalucia during a stroll through the street markets in Malaga
You may already know that Malaga houses some picturesque Food Markets (if not, don’t waste time and go and read the post!). But the city is also filled with little and bigger street markets, where you can find almost everything you need. And when we say everything, we mean it. From veggies and fruits to clothes, from pans to small furniture, the street markets in Malaga provide the locals with everything they need, at a lower price than the shopping centres.
They usually take place in the morning, throughout the week depending on the area. And don’t worry if you’ve found something you like but you don’t have money on you. You can always ask for the next place where the stall is going to be and discover another street market of the city.
So, if you want to feel like a local, you should keep reading!

These are the street markets that you will find all the weeks of the year, except on Festive days. In addition to these, Malaga also hosts various artisanal street markets that take place only on particular days or events.
For example, the La Plaza Merced Market takes place on the 4th Sunday of the month, just like the Malagueta 4 Market, flanking the beach of La Malagueta, on Paseo Marítimo Ciudad de Melilla. The third Sunday of the month, a gorgeous street market takes place along the Paseo Marítimo Antonio Banderas, next to the beach of La Misericordia. On the 1st Saturday of the month, the neighbourhood of El Soho gets filled with stalls.
The first Sunday of the month you can find the Mercadillo Baños del Carmen. And in summer, take a tour around the artisanal street market in the Muelle Uno, where you will find all kind of cutest little things, from pieces of clothes to house décor.
