Market Days in the Benidorm Area
Market Days, Benidorm area. This is only a guide, as days and locations can change.
There are markets along the Costa Blanca every day and these usually operate from about 8.30am until about 2pm. You will find all sorts of things on sale such as clothes, shoes, towels and blankets, ceramic pots and lots of lovely local fresh fruit etc. Prices do tend to be fixed and not a lot of bartering takes place but if you feel you are being charged over the odds give it a go.
