The lively Almoradi Market boasts a lovely setting in the streets around the beautiful Church Square. For a small town Almoradi has a lot of charm, and its market is no exception. In 2011 the market was declared a Place of Provincial Tourist Interest. This is a real street market, and with the market stall awnings creating shady little alleys, is reminiscent of an Arab souk. There are lovely areas to sit and relax around the square and the church is well worth a visit. The market is open every Saturday morning from 09:00 – 14:00.
