el-vegans-butcher-malaga

El Vegans

If you take a look at the shelves and display cases at El Vegans, you won’t find traditional meat cuts like chicken breasts, pork skewers or beef tenderloins. Instead, the 80-square-metre shop features gluten steaks, lentil sausages and mushroom ribs. Recently opened in the Huelin district, El Vegans proudly positions itself as a “butcher’s shop of the future” and has […]

Jamones Salamanca

With over 75 years of experience, this family business is the go-to spot for Spanish products.

Mercado Atarazanas Rafa Esteve

Mercado Atarazanas central food market

Whether you’re a tourist or you’re looking for an alternative to a supermarket for your weekly groceries, the perfect place to discover Andalusian gastronomy is at the Atarazanas central market. Open every morning (except Sunday), this food market boasts over a hundred stalls, primarily owned by local families passed on from generation to generation. They sell a vast array of […]
el corte inglés malaga

El Corte Inglés

You can’t miss the massive El Corte Inglés when entering Malaga from the west up the grand Avenida de Andalucía. Nor if you’re on pretty much any rooftop in the city. Especially around Christmas time when adorned with its famous illuminations. Though not local to Malaga (it was founded in Madrid in 1934) El Corte Inglés is a symbol across […]
la recova malaga (4)

La Recova

La Recova is pretty hard to define. Even when you’re stood right outside, looking at it. The sign says it’s a café… and yet there are pots, pans, crockery and other peculiar items (a bicycle, a record player and bird cages!) for sale in and around the doorway. The truth is, it’s an eclectic mix between a café and a […]
Mercado de Salamanca malaga

Mercado de Salamanca

It’s been a long time coming but the Mercado de Salamanca is back – and is looking great. This 1920s food market in the El Molinillo neighbourhood, just north of the Historic Centre, has undergone a complete renovation, maintaining its unique neo-Arab architecture. This is, unlike Atarazanas market, very much where locals go. While it is small, there is a lot […]
despensa de iñaki malaga

La Despensa de Iñaki

La Despensa de Iñaki is the younger cousin of the legendary Asador Iñaki. This gourmet deli now occupies the premises of the former restaurant which at the time was a sort of improvised street-side dining room. Now, having gained enormous popularity, Asador Iñaki has moved to the parallel Calle Ayala to a larger spot much more fitting of its status. […]
bioshop el cambio

Bioshop El Cambio

What was once just a small shop on Calle Compañía, El Cambio has grown to become a large supermarket on Calle Carretería with a large selection of vegan and ecological products. The self-proclaimed “vegan and organic supermarket with most variety in Malaga” was conceived with the “understanding that we are part of nature and responsible for it”. All types of […]
