Markets in Almuñécar
The local food and spice markets have long been an important tradition in Andalucía. Although more modern supermarket chains have become commonplace in the area, the locals still prefer their daily visits to the "Mercado" or local market. All fruits and vegetables, meats and fish are grown and cultivated locally. Spices are either grown locally or some of the more exotic ones come in from Morocco just across the sea. You will also find fresh eggs, homemade bread, wines and cheeses, and locally made honey and molasses. There is also a large variety of organic foods available.
