Nueva Andalusia market

One of the largest flea markets - or rastros, as they are called in Spanish - takes place on Saturday morning in Puerto Banús, an eye-catching marina 8 km west of Marbella. It occupies the area near the bullring, with vendors selling a bewildering variety of goods - from golf clubs to mirrors, paintings, and pianos. The prices are competitive and you can always practice your haggling skills if you think something is too expensive.

Cudeca Hospice Charity Business

At the Cudeca Hospice Charity Shop you can find unworn clothing (labels still on) for a fraction of the original price. It's also a great place to just browse the shelves of second-hand books or see what household items have been popping up lately. The shop is manned by friendly English speaking assistants and is right on the ocean, across from the Salvador Dali sculptures.

Monday street market

The Marbella Monday morning street market takes place from 9:00 a.m. to about 2:00 p.m. on the east side of the city when vendors leave for lunch. More than 350 stalls sell clothing, jewelry, and handicrafts, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables, and locals say the prices are cheaper here than in Marbella’s other street markets. When you're done shopping, head to the impromptu bar at the entrance for refreshments.

Las Chapas market

For clothes and jewelry at reduced prices, the flea market is well worth a visit, which takes place every Friday morning near the old town hall of Marbella. Although this is a relatively small Rastro compared to the others, the central location of Las Chapas market makes it a convenient stop for sightseeing in Marbella. Fruit and vegetables are also for sale.
