    Mecadillo de Campoamor: Where to find quality at bargain prices

    by BlackTshirt Written May 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's an outdoor market in Campamor, near Plaza de Toros in the centre of the city. It's open from 8 to 2 on Thursdays and Saturdays. You can find foods that are fresh from the countryside, clothing, shoes, belts, artwork, suitcases, and half the population of the city. Check out the produce - there's always something in season.

    What to buy: For gifts to return with, get some Turrón, a sort of nut candy they're been making here for hundreds of years.

    What to pay: 15 euros will be too much for a day's shopping.

    El Corte Ingles: Advice for men

    by sourbugger Written May 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here's a weeze to avoid countless hours shopping : direct you better half to El Corte Ingles. They use two large buildings near the train station (one for fashion the other furnishings) and have taken over a number of nearby units for various offshoots of the main store such as electricals.

    Despite the name (it translates as 'The english cut'), it is the most Spanish of companies, and many see it as part of the very fabric of the nation. As it tries to cater for all, its interesting to see what the Spanish mainstream likes to spend it's money on.

    Everything you may care to buy can be bought here; all in one place ; job done ; now - where's the bar ?

    Central Alicante

    by FamilyOfSix Written Feb 26, 2006

    Alicante has a decent number of shops for visitors, and you can easily spend a whole day walking the city centre shops. Explore the streets between La Rambla and Avenida de Federica Soto, up to Avenida de Alfonso El Sabio.

    Alicante is a city with its own life, so the stores are what you would expect in a city which doesn't only live on tourism.

  • Shopping in Spain

    by marisa81 Updated Jul 6, 2003

    There are many places to buy things in Alicante. Probably the most famous is "El corte de Ingles" it is a huge department store, with just about everything you could need. But it is quite pricey.
    Zara and Mango are spanish fashion institutions, they have great trendy fashions, Mango is the pricier of the two, Zara can be a little bit expensive, but if you go up to the top floor (there are 3) then the clothing is quite a bit cheaper.

    What to buy: There are also lots of great market stalls set up down by the ocean. If you are looking for little tourist collectable type things, this is the place to go.
