Rastro de Fuengirola

El Rastro de Fuengirola is possibly the Rastro par excellence of the Costa del Sol, an attractive mix of used objects of all kinds, of all value and of all price spread on more than 350 booths

El Rastro de Fuengirola is possibly the Rastro par excellence of the Costa del Sol, an attractive mix of used objects of all kinds, of all value and of all price that was born in 1994 from the initiative of foreign residents in love with European flea markets. It is also one of the largest flea markets in all of Spain with over 350 booths.

The Rastro de Fuengirola sets up twice a week, though it is the Saturday opening that displays the most second hand goods, vintage items and the odd antique. This flea market tends to be a little busier on Saturdays too, so it is advised to set an early alarm and prepare to spend the whole day strolling around the thousands of goods on display.

The range of goods for sale at the Rastro de Fuengirola is quite extraordinary. There are vinyl collections, plants, vintage and second hand books, antique mirrors, paintings, table ornaments, china ware, lamps, vintage clothing, old cameras, retro toys, enameled badges, jugs, ceramic, crockery, stuffed animals, army helmets, local arts & crafts and much more. There is plenty on display from the local area, but some vendors also come from North Africa to show off their more exotic wares. The Rastro de Fuengirola absolutely has it all, and a little more besides.

Vendors at the Rastro de Fuengirola are full of knowledge and information about the goods they have for sale. Do not be shy to chat with them to find out anything and everything you might be interested in, about the items for sale and probably a whole lot more! Most vendors only accept cash, so take more than you plan to spend and enjoy the day.

It will definitely take a whole day to make your way around the hundreds of vendors at the Rastro de Fuengirola. It is therefore important, for maximum enjoyment, to wear comfortable shoes! Although the market tends to close around the typical siesta time, there are still a few hours of quite intense sun to combat (depending on the season) and there is not a great deal of cover at this market. So wear a huge sun hat and slather on the sun cream before initiating your treasure hunt!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
