Market Days on the Costa Blanca

Market Days on the Costa Blanca

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.

This is only a guide, as days and locations can change, adverse weather conditions will also have an effect on how many stall holders are in attendance.

Stay safe round the markets

Wear a bag that is hard for thieves to put their hand into.

Don't keep valuables in your back pockets.

Always keep an eye on your bag, if you stop for a coffee and don’t leave your phone or purse on a table top.

Carry very little cash, yes of course you may need another pair of shoes and breakfast and a coffee or whatever but carry as little as possible, separate it between you if you are a couple.

Always be aware of what is going on around you

DO NOT have anything to do with the Pea/Potato men
