The Fuengirola Market
The Fuengirola Market is the largest of Andalusia and one of the most important in all of Spain. All types of objects and souvenirs can be purchased in a fun, and lively atmosphere. The Market is only open on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and depending on which day you go, you’ll experience a different compilation of vendors.
On Tuesdays, the vendors at the Fuengirola will be selling high end goods such as pottery, gold, silver, jewelry, leather goods, wood furniture, fruit, vegetables, and clothes, all at reasonable prices. If you visit on a Tuesday, you’ll be able to purchase not just Spanish souvenirs, as a variety of vendors come to Fuengirola from across Europe.
On Saturdays, expect a flea market with vendors selling used goods and second hand items. You’re still likely to find unique items however, making it worth the trip on Saturdays.
