If you enjoy a stroll around the market or car boot sale, then the Costa del Sol will have you spoilt for choice. Every day of the week you will find a different street market or car boot sale with an array of bargains to consider!
There is something quite fun about visiting the local markets and boot sales with friends or family in the lovely weather, and you will see just about everything from fresh produce to furniture, clothes and jewellery for sale. So while you are on holiday on the Costa del Sol, take a day to browse the authentic markets, enjoy some R&R and find some Spanish souvenirs to remember.
If you rent long term on the Costa del Sol, there may be bits and pieces you need like various household items, garden furniture, and decorative items which can be found new at markets for excellent prices compared to shops. Markets can also be a great place to buy unusual, nice gifts for family and friends without breaking the bank.
