Sabor a Malaga - Gourmet Market in Torremolinos
The gourmet market and restaurant area dedicated to the 'Sabor a Málaga' food promotional brand opened its doors to the public in the summer of 2021. The concession for the gastronomic and cultural space, located in Plaza de la Independencia, is managed by the Málaga-based La Reserva, an enterprise with an extensive track record owned by local hotelier José Gómez.
An emblematic building that originally housed the town’s municipal market, it was later converted into the town hall’s municipal offices, and later, after a profound refurbishment work, it became the first and, to this day, the only permanent Sabor a Málaga space in the province.
The gourmet market is a gastronomic multi-space that was refurbished with an investment of 300,000 euros from the Junta de Andalucía (provincial government) and 111,000 euros from Torremolinos town hall.
The building consists of several restaurants, tapas bars and commercial outlets offering products carrying the brand's coveted seal of approval, along with an internal courtyard and a large open terrace which has a capacity for 400 diners.
There is also an elegant dining room situated on the first floor, which can be reserved for private functions, conferences and parties.
Customers have at their disposal commercial outlets offering, Iberian pork products, cheeses, wine, olive oil, coffee, honey and artisan sweets and homemade ice cream , among other products included in the brand’s vast range.
The selection of wines available comprises some of Spain’s top regions, including La Rioja, Ribera de Duero, and, of course, those from the Denominación de Origen (DO) of Málaga and the Sierra de Málaga.
Malaga is rich in flavours and aromas and all of them are grouped under this pioneering promotional brand, which unifies the province's highest quality products under a global image. The second major objective pursued by Sabor a Málaga is to promote the marketing of all the products linked to the brand, emphasising the quality and exclusivity of each of them. The brand contributes to the revitalization of the local economy and the creation of jobs in the agricultural and agri-food sector of Málaga.
