Mercado Salamanca Malaga
Market in Malaga
Calle San Bartolome 1
Hours: Monday to Saturday: 8 am to 2 pm.
The nearly century old ‘Mercado de Salamanca’, located in the district of El Molinillo, is significantly smaller and less well known than its big brother, the ‘Mercado Atarazanas’ but it is certainly worth a visit and it’s only a ten- minute walk from the city centre. Immerse yourself in everyday Spanish life in this bustling indoor market.
The buoyant Neo-Mudéjar style of this building is remarkable. You can tell what type of products are for sale from the artistic tiles at the entrance gate.
Of course we’re talking about the main ingredients for preparing a meal: fish, meat and vegetables.
It’s no surprise that the fish department has the upper hand here as well. The fish is delivered fresh, prepared in front of your eyes and quickly sold.
Mercado Salamanca Malaga is very popular with neighbourhood locals who always make time to chat with one another. It doesn’t get much more Spanish than this.
