ESTEPONA MARKETS

Tourist Markets -  Sunday Morning
Officially called 'Mercadillo del Puerto' in the Marina - Gifts, leather work, watches, costume jewellery, arts and crafts, presents, novelties, music CD's and tapes. This market has been established for 30 years and is very popular. From 09.00 to 14.00hrs. The adjacent bars and cafes of the port provide welcome relief for the weary. The numerous restaurants are popular for Sunday lunch. The traders white vans occupy the prime parking spaces in the port from dawn to dusk clearly should be forced to park elswhere. Entering the port by car on a Sunday morning is chaotic, We suggest the nearby parking that is always available behind the Bullring at the end of Calle Matias Prats.
