Handcraft and gourmet Market in La Cala


Two weeks ago, the blog post we published here about the handcraft market in Mijas was very popular among our guests. Because of this, today we would like to recommend you another great market you can visit if you are currently on holiday at Hotel Yaramar.

The market we mean is the handcraft and gourmet market that is on from 11:00 A.M to 8:30 P.M. on the Supersol square of La Cala de Mijas, and which can be visited up until tomorrow, the 11th of December.

Getting to La Cala from Fuengirola is easy as they are quite close and the bus line that connects Fuengirola with Marbella has a stop in there.

If you would like to visit La Cala de Mijas and you are a big market fan, we are sure you will really enjoy this one.

Besides, it is the perfect moment to start with the Christmas shopping!

Mercado de la Merced


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!
