Moraira Mercadillo / Market

When you arrive at Moraira’s weekly open air market the unmistakable mouth-watering aroma of fresh churros being cooked greets you. Churros, sometimes referred to as a Spanish doughnut, are fried dough pastry snacks, and are eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate or café con leche. They are typically fried until they become crunchy, and may be sprinkled with sugar. So, once armed with a wrap of churros and your chosen drink, you can then wander between the stalls, and enjoy the sheer abundance, variety and freshness of the locally-grown produce.

Market stall holders sell fruit and vegetables, of course, and at prices below those of the supermarkets, and what’s more, you help support the growers directly. Dried fruit and nuts are also for sale: everything from almonds to walnuts, from dried papaya to pineapple, prunes, dates, apricots, and more. And you can buy as much – or as little – as you want.

There is a wide variety of leather goods on offer too. From bags to belts, from leather sandals to wallets, from purses to wristbands, you’ll find something either for yourself, or something to make the perfect gift. To add to the variety on offer, there are stalls selling shoes, clothes, and a wide range of household items, too. Last but not least are the charity second hand book stalls, supporting local Spanish good causes.

Every Friday 8.30am - 1.30pm
