The local markets are a great source of fresh fruit and vegetables, sourced locally and usually more reasonably priced than the large supermarket chains. They are also a nice place to have a stroll, enjoy the small-town ambiance, and of course purchase a roast chicken (they are impossible to resist!). If like me you can never remember where they are and what day they fall on I have compiled a list of some of the markets along the coast:
Águilas– C/ Reina Sofía, C/Antonio Salas, C/Inmaculada, C/Miguel de Cervantes, C/Lope de Vega y Pza. Virgen de los Dolores – Saturday
Cabo de Palos– Comercial Las Dunas – Sunday
Isla Plana– C/del Elefante – Friday
Los Nietos– beside the football stadium (winter), in front of FEVE station (summer)- Sunday
Los Urrutias– C/ Unificación, C/ Ramos Carratalá y C/ Reverte – Thursday
Los Alcázares– C/ Leonardo Da Vinci, C/ Pintor Pedro Flores y C/ P. FranciscoBayeu-Saturday
Puerto Lumbreras– Rambla de Nogalte- Friday
