    Almunecar

    Friday, February 22, 2013
    Located on the grounds near the "Arc de Triomphe Puerto", the ALMUNECAR "OPEN" MARKET or "Mercadillo Los Viernes", is held on Fridays. Sunday is the Flea Market at the same location.
    There were at least 200 stands, with lots to choose from. Known by the locals as the "Baratillo" because it is so cheap to shop there.
    Items for sale included:
    watches and jewellery - as little as 6 items for one Euro
    shoes and handbags
    clothing - some as little as "TODO" 2 Euros
    Pottery
    Candy and Spices
    Local Honey - very popular item

    Open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
    Very crowded, so watch out for your handbags, backpacks and any valuables you may be carrying, like your camera.

    Vinos y Licores!: Vinos y Licores

    Vinos y Licores

    Actually, this little shop is packed full of loads of things as well as the vios y licores. In the center of the old town, right on the edge of the square, it is rather handy if you want to grab a few bits to take home without having to do 'a shop'. As well as some regional wines and liquors, they sell chocolate, garlic, olive oil, olives, Manchego cheese and of course, the obligatory jamon!

    It's quite a touritsy shop in some ways, but 'much' cheaper than the airport and stocks genuine local stuff. I picked up my favourite Bonka coffee last visit thus avoiding a large supermarket, it was on a shelf next to some olive oil soaps! It is also right by some outside cafes, so you can place people there with a cold drink and a tapa, while you browse the higgly piggledy shelves. Handy!

    What to buy: Bonka coffee
    Manchego cheeze
    Olive oil in cans (easier to transport with the new liquid hand luggage rule)
    Olive oil soap
    Almond nugat etc

    They also have a large selction of minatures. So yopu can now take a mini brandy (permitted in your liquids bag as under 100 ml) on the plane should you desire a drink without paying the extortionate ailine/airport costs.

    What to pay: A little more than supermarket but better packaging for travel and much cheaper than the aiport.
