It offers a wide variety; from food with fresh fruit and vegetables, to textiles like clothes, shoes, and accessories, as well as home décor items, where we highlight local crafts, or cosmetics.

The stalls are set up at the Torremolinos Fairgrounds, very close to the Plaza de Toros, every week from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., unless an important event is taking place or one of Torremolinos’ famous festivals is being held.
