The Municipal Market Almuñecar
(Mercado Municipal or Daily Market)
The first few weeks here, we thought we had figured out this small town, except for one building. Each time we went by this place, it was the afternoon and appeared that people were just cleaning. Outside it said Mercado Municipal (municipal market), so we knew it was some type of market.
The Almuñecar Mercado Municipal (Food, Flower and Spice Market)
Monday – Saturday 9:00 – 2:00 – Avenida de la Cala
One day, I finally walked over after dropping the kids off at school. This was one happening place! It is a terracotta colored building in the middle of town, just across from the Aquarium (we still need to check this out too). Outside of the building there are stands set up selling fresh flowers and potted plants. Inside are several rows of individual stalls set up to sell fresh goods. There were bakery’s, butchers, produce, coffee, herbs and seafood.
There were several free loaders hanging out near the seafood stalls. There was one cat burglar on the run and I managed to nab a photo! Another that was on the prowl and ready to pounce on me, if I got any closer. I loved that the market stall owners threw out fish for all of the stray cats. I think I had more fun watching all of them rather than buying goods this day.
Cut your grocery bill!
I like to go and pick up fresh produce, like Granada’s (pomegranates). Each fall our grocery bill sky rocketed in the US. Why? Because Alan is addicted to pomegranates and has the rest of us hooked too. In NC they are pretty expensive, about $1.50 to $2.00 per “pommie”. We would rack up at least an extra $80-$100 per month for the season (Sept-Dec). What do I love about Almuñecar? I bought 5 huge granada’s for 3 Euros, that is about $3.80 or 76 cents each! Woohoo!
