Malaga : Mercado de Atarazanas

Mercado de Atarazanas Malaga

Located in Malaga, Atarazanas Market is one of the biggest pleasures of a Saturday in the city. While today's building was finished in 1879, the actual location dates from much earlier, where the Arabs used to have a workshop. Only the pretty marble door remains from those days. And the name, Atarazanas. Which is also Arab.

El Mercado Central de Atarazanas es un mercado municipal en Málaga. El edificio actual, obra del arquitecto Joaquín de Rucoba, se construyó entre 1876 y 1879 en el solar donde estuvo un taller naval de origen nazarí, del que sólo se conserva una puerta de mármol y de donde proviene su nombre; atarazana. Qué suerte vivir en España, comprar fresas de Huelva, mangos de Málaga y atún deshuesado :P

I LOVE THIS.

This is THE PLACE TO BUY FISH. I mean, look at that Tuna, that Swordfish, that Salmon.
FRESH + BONELESS = PERFECT YUMMINESS!!

Shrimps are not so much of my thing, but these teens are SO FUN to watch.

Tomatoes from Almeria, 1€ per KILOGRAM. Having been living in Sweden and Japan, seeing this quality at such price, man, makes me cry out of joy.

In general, a walk around the market is a lot of fun. The guys on the stalls are always joking and easily give you a small discount.

Spanish butchers' can be a bit gross... Think of skinless rabbits, cow legs and lamb heads. Not for everyone.

The fish is SO FRESH that is hard.

But the Market is not limited to fresh produce. One can also buy adobo (marinated meat), olives, spices a.s.o.
