Street markets on Costa Blanca have been part of the popular Spanish tradition for centuries. All towns in Spain, no matter how small, have their market at least once a week. In Alicante’s Vega Baja, we can find, among others, fantastic street markets in towns such as Guardamar, Benijófar, Torrevieja, Orihuela and Rojales.
In these street markets there are stalls of clothing, jewelry, footwear, home clothes, antiques and also fruit, vegetables, spices, flowers, etc.
The fruit and vegetables they offer us are seasonal, grown in our land, tender, fresh, juicy and with an exquisite flavor. It is very worth buying these products at the market stalls.
Although it might seem that the purpose of these markets is to go shopping, the truth is that many people go to them as an alternative plan, that is, to take a simple walk and spend the morning or the afternoon. Also as a meeting point with friends or family where you can have a good time. In addition, from Monday to Sunday you can find them in different towns, so it is a good plan for any day of the week.
In the street markets we can also find food trucks, such as roast chickens, hamburgers, paellas, soft drinks, smoothies and ice creams, and even our typical churros with chocolate that are the best first thing in the morning … or at any time of the day!
