Costa Blanca Market days.

Whether you are on holidays or a local, everybody enjoys to take in the special ambiance of visiting a local market. Fruit and vegetables seem to be fresher and better priced than the supermarkets and you quite often see the Spanish locals stocking up for their weeks cooking. Market days are weekly here in the Costa Blanca and each town has a fixed day. Underneath you will find a list of market days in the various towns.

I do enjoy a visit to the market as a private person, but also as a caterer and chef of course. Fresh vegetables are essential for a successful catering, whether this is for a wedding, a barbecue, some tasty tapas and paella, a birthday party or any other special event. We do like our vegetables don´t we?

I like to add some fresh vegetable skewers ( pinchos de vegetales) on my barbecue menus. Everybody loves them. Just put some fresh peppers, aubergines, courgettes onions, carrot slices and mushrooms on a skewer. The carrots you have to blanch first. Sprinkle some fresh lime juice and season them with a bit of thyme, freshly chopped garlic, salt and pepper.
