The market in Denia, i.e. the weekly market, takes place every Friday morning. At the market in Denia you will find local products such as fresh vegetables and fruits. The smell of the fresh vegetables and fruit awakens the desire to cook and enjoy. There are seasonal specialties for every season. Especially in winter, the tangerines and oranges stand out. Many people take advantage of this to then prepare freshly squeezed orange juice at home. In spring, already from the end of February, we find strawberries. During the summer there are melons, cherries and tomatoes of all kinds. And in the months of autumn a variety of mushrooms and olives is offered. So all year round you can smell, taste and buy the seasonal, fresh goods from the region.
The weekly market is located at Calle La via, directly above the large multi-storey car park in the center of Denia. The market hall “Mercado Central” is also very close by and is definitely worth a visit. The streets of Denia always fill up with many visitors and some tourists on Fridays. After breakfast in the city centre, they are still looking for fresh food from the market. Shop like the Spaniards! So it’s definitely worth stopping by there. Not only to buy fresh products, but also to get to know the atmosphere and everyday life of the local people. A chat between the stalls is part of the lifestyle. You exchange ideas. And they tell each other the news of the week.
All sorts of souvenirs at the Rastro market in Denia
