Secret architectural gems of Málaga - the Salamanca market

Arts & Culture Editorial Food & Drink Lifestyle

The Mercado de Salamanca is one of those fabulous opulent oddities that gets built and becomes part of the fabric and identity of the neighbourhood, but is often little known outside the locality. Otherwise known as the Mercadillo del Molinillo, as that's the name of the barrio in which it is located, it was built between 1922 and 25, and has had nearly a hundred years continuous use as a local market. Its forty something stalls sell predominantly fish and seafood, fresh meat and vegetables, and a few more esoteric offerings.
