The Weekly Market in Lloret de Mar, a different plan for your holidays on the Costa Brava!11.12.2018
Going for a walk and wander on Tuesday morning, into the weekly market of Lloret de Mar, is a plan that residents and tourists who visit this famous village on the Costa Brava use to do weekly.
The flea market of Lloret de Mar
Every Tuesday, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, the weekly outdoor market of Lloret de Mar takes place. Its main charm is that it can be enjoyed in full daylight, going for a nice walk along the Rieral Avenue, from Carrer Can Guidet to Carrer Carles Rahola i Llorens.
During the morning, you can take a walk and enjoy among the more than 150 shops the market has. You will find of all kind and very different: fruits and vegetables, fish and meat, as well as other food products typical of the area of the Costa Brava. We advise you to go hungry, so you can eat some of those products there and enjoy the moment! ;)
In the weekly market of Lloret de Mar you can also buy clothing products and other accessories, often of high quality like those of other shops and at an affordable price. Do you need a swimwear to relax in the Spa at Hotel Rosamar Es Blau or Hotel Rosamar & SPA? Don’t worry, surely there you will find it!
And apart from all this, don’t forget that you can find there the most characteristic craft products on the Costa Brava, which are sold by the producers. Take the opportunity to talk with them and ask them how they made that piece of clothing or sculpture, what materials they used... As well as, do not hesitate to ask the farmers where they have grown food, what is the seasonal product, and everything that goes on going there!
Without a doubt, visiting the weekly market is an opportunity to discover Lloret de Mar, its inhabitants and also its culture! :)
Origin of the local market in Catalonia
The birth of the local markets in Catalonia dates back to the 10th century, when the first merchants began to set up their stalls in the main streets of their villages. The curious thing is that in those times they were based on the exchange of products or foods, and from that time the commerce began to have this relation so close with the citizens.
Over the years, the market has been taking the form of what we now know: more organized stalls and with the aim of buying and selling.
Weekly markets, which usually take place between one and two days per week depending on the population, are also a symbolic element in the culture and history of Catalonia.
