Saturday Market Benidorm in La Cala Finestrat

From freshly cooked CHICKEN to CHA CHA Heels!

Saturday Market Benidorm La Cala Finestrat

La Cala Finestrat Saturday Market near Benidorm has it all and more…..

The Saturday morning market in the bay at La Cala Finestrat just up the road by Bus from Benidorm, has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years.  What was once a tiny and rather dull little market selling the usual range of shoes and handbags has grown into a fine place to buy fresh local Spanish fruit and vegetables, plus cheese, bread, and of course hams and delicious sliced sausages of all types.

This is a happy market, there is not the overkill found in the large Benidorm market which allow too many of the same type of stall.  Here you will not find stall after stall all selling exactly the same thing.  The pitch holders do not have that look of desperation often seen in other markets.  There is a real feel of a local market frequented by people who live locally and not just a tourist trap kind of place.  This market really deserves support, it is great.

You will find real variety here with a great mix of food, clothes and of course those obligatory look like the real thing handbags!  You will not find those horrible “brown shoes only” stalls, instead you will find smart modern (mostly fake) branded shoes for men and sparkly big Cha Cha heel shoes for ladies.

There are several of each type of stall, but each seems to sell very different stock.  You will find really good handmade costume jewellery, a wonderful stall selling every type of olive you could imagine.  There are beautifully colourful vegetable stalls, date stalls, melon stalls, fresh baked bread and simple seasonal cherry stalls.  You can buy quality rugs, cheap knickers, beach beds, art and leather.  For the peckish, enjoy a couple of makeshift cafés and a couple of popular ready to go spit roasted chicken vendors who will chop it, skin it and box it ready to eat (always big queues).

It is a real pleasure to spend a few hours here.  Easy to park or take the regular bus No.2 or No.3 from central Benidorm.  After a trip to this authentic local market there is a great beach to enjoy a dip in the sea or hop on the bus back to Benidorm old town for an authentic Spanish late lunch.  Whatever YOU do, enjoy YOUR break in La Cala and why not book one of the best hotels in town too staying right on the beach.  SEE THE FANTASTIC LA CALA BEACH HOTEL Click Now!
