Mercado de la Merced

09Nov

Last week here on the blog of Hotel Yaramar we published a post about one of the most popular dishes of our local gastronomy.Mercado de la Merced - Hotel Yaramar Fuengirola

Today this blog is again about “good food” as we would like to recommend you a visit to a fantastic gourmet market.

This gourmet market is called Mercado de la Merced and it is located very close to Plaza de la Merced, the famous square where Picasso was born 134 years ago.

Mercado de la Merced is new but at the same time old as not till long it was a tradicional market with a few stalls where people from the neighbourhood did their shopping. Nowadays after a massive makeover it has become a fantastic gourmet market where people can do their shopping and also have a fantastic time having all kind of tapas with friends.

Now it looks trendy, cosmopolitan and fun. It is a busy and lively place in a great location that not only supports modern and traditional cuisine but also art as since it opened on the 29th of September it has housed some fantastic exhibitions. The first to arrive was the fantastic collection of jackets from Spanish celebrity chef Alberto Chicote which was followed by an exhibition called “The Streght of Art”.

If right now you are staying with us at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, you had planned to visit Malaga and you are a foodie we recommend you to visit Mercado de la Merced to try the best of modern Spanish cuisine.

We are sure this experience will be one of the best of your holiday!
