Weekly food markets on the Costa Brava
Costa Brava farmers markets is a tradition which has been going on for centuries. Almost every town and village on the Costa Brava has a weekly farmers market selling fresh local produce. In the smaller villages this may be just a few stalls selling fruit and vegetables and perhaps some cheeses and charcuterie. Bigger towns will also have stalls selling clothing, kitchen and household items and much more.
We like to buy our fruit and vegetables from markets as often as possible. Not only do we find the freshest produce at the best prices but we also think it is important to support our local commerce and businesses.
