  • Mercado Municipal: Fruit and veg to die for

    by Keith41 Updated Jun 3, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The large indoor market, many stalls with local fruit, veg, meat and fish. Very tasty and much cheaper than UK. The locals make a social event of it by stopping off for a coffee or beer. The fruit is just fantastic and the chicken I bought had much more taste than the sellophane offerings from my local multinational.

    What to buy: Fruit, meat

    What to pay: about half the price of UK supermarkets

    A very large 2 storey supermarket which sells absolutely everything.
    If like me you have a property which you are trying to furnish and equip and you dont know the area or the language very well, this shop is really good. as well as being a very large supermarket with great choice of food and drink, you can buy TVs, Hi Fi, BBQ, Bikes, Mattresses and beds, some basic furniture, all the bits and pieces you need like washing line, buckets, pans etc etc

    What to buy: Just about everything.

    What to pay: Really well priced for food and drink.
    Other stuff is competitive too.

    Supermarkets: Warmth in winter

    by rachel_sun Written Jan 7, 2005
    Lovely open fire

    As we went to Spain at Christmas time we decided to have an open fire in our place.We went to a local shop which sold food and saw logs for sale.They were about 3 euros for a huge bag of 8.That was enough to last a couple of days.You can buy logs in bulk if you are living there which are better value but for people like us who do not live there as yet we just wanted a few.Any food shop will sell logs in winter.I really enjoyed having a open fire.

    Ruskito along main road.Near Casa and Mac D's: Rustic Charm.

    by rachel_sun Written Jan 7, 2005
    Pic we found at a great price.

    What to buy: My fav shop has to be Rustiko still.It is abit pricey but if you look around you can pick some bargains up.We found this pic at a good price £50.There are often things that are marked down.This place is now selling Japanese style furniture.The shop next door to Rustiko is now selling a few nice pieces of furniture too.Same side of road, to the right as you walk into the store.We bought two bedside cabinets from shop next door.Both shops are well worth checking out.

    Electronic shops along Ondara Denia road: Shop around for special offers

    by rachel_sun Written Apr 21, 2004
    Microwave that set my back ��30.

    We have just been out to Spain and I bought a few more electronic items for my home.I've found that its best to shop around as shops have special offers on on certain items at diff times.One store I bought a small hoover for £30 but did not buy a microwave from same shop as they were £50+.So I just got the hoover and looked around and found a microwave in another store on special offer for £30.Its worth shopping around as if u buy everything all from one shop you will be paying more for some items that in other stores.

    What to buy: I found tv's the cheapest in the supermarket as I mentioned earlier.So do take alittle time to shop around and find those bargains.

    Local pottery and tiles: Potty

    by rachel_sun Written Apr 21, 2004
    Plenty of good local craft at amazing prices.

    There are many places selling pottery all over the Costa Blanca.You will see large shops selling many items on side of roads like in picture.They sell beautiful handmade pots and tiles and also statues etc and great stone garden furniture.The choice is huge and the prices are fabulous.I bought a huge pot for my garden and it was parly glazed and it was only £20.It would cost at least £50 here in England.I also bought some beautiful Valencian tiles with my house number on to put outside my house on my gate.They were 4 euros

    What to buy: When I live in Spain I will buy alot more pots as they are beautiful standing alone and empty or beautiful housing plants.I also bought a nice jug for wine and some handmade egg cups which were 2 euros each.

    Food and Drink: Markets

    by rachel_sun Written Apr 21, 2004
    Locally produced pate and sauages

    Every town and village has a weekly market.You can buy clothes and pottery and food and drink and many other items so they are well worth going to.They start early in the morning and last til around lunch time.If you want to get all the bargains and best items you are best going early.You can go early and eat your breakfast there as there will probably be one stand selling coffee and snacks etc.
    Most of the food will be locally grown and you will see farmers with woven baskets.I recomend buying things that are expensive back home.Fruits etc.

    What to buy: Buy some local things like cheeses and honey,olives,dred peppers and tomatoes and hams.When you want to buy some cheese you can taste it before buying it.There are also second hand markets which are popular on the Costas.Do buy fresh fish from local fresh fish market normally held once a week on docks or local square.Spain has great tasty local fish.Denia has fresh fish sold every day at the harbour.Well worth going to see it.

    Wine shop: Bodegas

    by rachel_sun Written Apr 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Me enjoying local wine.

    Most villages will have a bodega producing local wines of the area for local people to drink.It is sometimes very strong but always great value.Malaga has sweet wine and British people love it.Cadiz makes great Sherry and good red and white wines come from Rioja and Penedes.Wine and other alcoholic drinks are great value in Spain and more than half of that of England.

    What to buy: Just go in and try the wines and enjoy.

    What to pay: Most villages and Towns

    shops around Denia.: Try to get discount when bulk buying

    by rachel_sun Written Apr 21, 2004
    Bedroom furniture.

    I bought the bed and headboard from a shop along the Ondara El Vergel road and shop is about half a mile from El Vergel.The bed cost £40 and mattress cost £60 and the headboard cost £25.You can see in the pic the two bedside cabinets i bought from Rustiko too.The lantern cost £4 from Casa.The bedside light cost £19 from Rustiko.

    What to buy: When you buy several items at once ask for a discount or an item thrown in .It worked with me and i got a table lamp free worth £25,, a free candle holder worth £5, 5% off another bill and 10% another.Its worth asking as if you dont ask u will not get.

    What to pay: Another great place to shop is Gata De Gorges for whicker furniture and ethnic style furniture.Gata De Gorges is famous for all its whicker shops and its worth while going.
