Marbella Street markets (mercadillos) are great places to buy souvenirs and fresh fruits & vegetables. All markets are similar, selling fake brand name handbags, sunglasses, watches and wallets as well as a myriad of clothing, spices, shoes, music and more. However, some have specialty items that you may not find in other markets.
Keep in mind that markets are open from approximately 9:30am - 2:00pm. In the summer, avoid the heat and the crowds and get there early!
