Market day

by daarth Online Now Jan 14, 2010 at 3:17 AM

Is market day in Estepona Wednesday or Sunday? I have been told both and wonder which is correct. Perhaps they actually have it twice a week?
Where in Estepona is the market?
Thanks

    The covered Mercado de Abastos or Food Market open in mornings can be seen on Google Maps at this address:

    Calle Villa 29680 Estepona, Spain

    The tourist market is held at the Marina on Sunday mornings.

    The Town Market is held on Wednesday mornings at the open ground near the Motorway A-7 (Autopista de Mediterraneo) and the beginning of Avenida de Juan Carlos I , next to the football stadium. On Google Maps you can find it using this address:

    Camino de las Puertas 29680 Estepona, Spain

    hope all those locatuions are up to date !

    Is the Mercado de Abastos open on Sundays?
    We always arrive on Saturdays, and the nearest market with fruit and vegetables isn't open till Thursdays (San Pedro)

    No that figures. I take it there is no fruit and vegetables at the tourist market. It's no big deal as Monday in Estepona is a good day :-)
    Thanks both of you!

    Hey that is cool, thanks! I will have a chance to explore it already now on Monday March 1st
    btw, I was at the Thursday market in San Pedro on December 31st now, and they were closing as I got there. It was two hours early because of lots and lots of rain! The few still selling were trying to get rid of everything at a very low price lol
