  • First time I visited such a place. Definitely must see if you can't to try food from Spain. It's divided in 2 sections: seafood and fruit/veg. Both sections are amazing, all is fresh. Outside the building you can try traditional food:I would advice to eat on the exit as it's not so close to the road and people are more customer oriented then in the entrance
  • This has to be a 'must see' place on a visit to Malaga. Fantastic displays of lovely produce and they cook fish for you while you while you're there to enjoy with a nice beer and a vermouth. Lovely place. The photos don't do it justice because they were taken on another visit just as the market was closing. Give it's visit, you won't be disappointed.
