There are markets along the Costa Blanca every day and these usually operate from about 9/10am until about 2pm. You will find a wide range of goods on sale such as clothes, shoes, towels and blankets, ceramic pots and dishes to mention just a few. Prices do tend to be fixed and not a lot of bartering takes place but if you feel you are being charged over the odds you should try some bartering – the sellers may claim not to speak English but most of them have some knowledge of the language.
Below we have created a complete list of markets on the Costa Blanca by day. There are also flea markets on some days which sell some old Spanish items which you may find interesting. They are known as “antique” markets but you are unlikely to find many genuine antiques.
