The markets on the Costa del Sol are a wonderful place to find bargains to suit everyone. Particularly good buys are Spanish pottery and leather goods, although almost everything is available including such things as mango chutney and birambi chutney, although it is still impossible to find good curry or really hot peppers. For something different, why not try one of the flea markets where there are many stalls selling genuine old Spanish items which make a great change from the usual souvenirs. The flea market in Fuengirola is the biggest and well worth a visit. Normally markets run from 10:00 to 3:00 although they may start packing up sooner, particularly in winter.
