Marbella Town Hall is organizing a Marbella Ecological Market to take place every first Saturday of the month. The market takes place from 10:00am to 2:00pm on the Paseo de la Alameda in Marbella center.

This ecological market hopes to add variety to the commercial center and to promote the consumption of ecological products in Marbella. All products come from various regions of the province of Malaga and include a variety of items such as vegetables, honey, oil, citrus, eggs and wine among others. The initiative also involves local bars in the center that provide tapas and traditional recipes.

The Tourism department hopes this market brings new tourism and interest to the Marbella area and seeks to support the rising interest among the locals to buy ecological products.

Eco friendly products in Marbella

I just got back from this ecological market and was surprised at how small it was. There were only about 15 or 20 stands and since we got there quite early there weren´t many people. However, after a couple of hours in town, we passed the market again and it was bustling with customers.

There were lots of things to choose from that are technically, eco-friendly, without conservatives, preservatives or pesticides. I don´t know how these people are certified, however, some of the items, such as the jams, had a small label certifying its authenticity. It is a label with the letters CAAE. It must mean something like the Andalucian Ecological Association Certificate or something like that.

We bought some goat cheese in oil, fresh bread, avocado honey and a couple of jams. The cheese in oil is absolutely delicious. One of the breads we bought was made of eggs, but it was sweet. It makes a perfect breakfast bread. The kids loved it too. The honey was interesting...didn´t taste like avocados, but still very good. And the jams we tried were all so good it was hard to decide which one to get. We went with a typical berry jam and decided to try out the orange/onion jam. It was really different and special. The vendor told us that after we open the jam we should store it in the fridge upside down. It´s less likely to mold that way.

This eco-market is supposed to take place the first Saturday of every month, however, next month the first Saturday is January 1st. I asked around if the vendors would come, but no one could answer. I guess, being the first market, they may want to see what the turnout is and decide if it´s worth it.
