Every Spanish town has at least one weekly market, if not more, and the towns in the area of Marbella are no exception. From ecological produce to antiques and handmade gifts, you will find them all on stalls in and around Marbella.
Parking is extremely difficult nearby the different markets, so public transport or parking a little further out is recommended.
Below is a list of the must-visit markets.
