How to get a stall at the market
Markets in Marbella
To get a stand at one of the markets along the Costa del Sol you would need to go to the local town hall to obtain a permit and sometimes there is a waiting list for stall spaces depending on the town and market.
For some of the second hand rastros and car-boots you just arrive early to get your space but normal established markets you would need to go through the procedures.

1. Visit all the local markets.
2. Does your product fit?
3. Are there more vendors than buyers?
4. Chat to stall holders for how to book, what time set up.
5. Find out where the latest new markets are going to be, and are they advertised effectively for a turn out.
