Seville offers some excellent open markets, which we have divided into two categories:

1. Municipal food markets

Open every day except Sunday from around 8.00 am – 2.00 pm, and which are the traditional places to buy fresh groceries. Shop around and compare quality and prices between the many food stands.


Feria market

The oldest of Seville's municipal provisions markets, about halfway along Calle Feria. Home to La Cantina, the best of the market bars. We highly recommend to go there for a Tapas lunch at 1-2pm. The food is super fresh and delicious.

Arenal market

In Calle Pastor y Landero. The building is magnificent, but beginning to look in need of some refurbishment.

Encarnación market

Finally reopened at the end of 2010 in its new purpose-built accommodation in the Metropol Parasol. Not as traditional in appearance as the other markets, but pleasant, clean and spacious.

Triana market

At the Triana end of the Isabella II bridge, this busy and popular market was lovingly restored a few years ago, and successfully combines the clean and modern with a traditional feel.

2. Street markets

Are held periodically to buy and sell collectables, second hand items, paintings and comparable items.


El Jueves

El Jueves is the antiques market held every Thursday (Jueves) in Calle Feria, where, if you're lucky, you may be able to pick up a painting or some ceramics at a bargain price. Most likely it will be something second-hand rather than genuinely antique, but the fun is in the browsing, or in watching the ebb and flow of humanity from one of the local bars. There's been a market here for more than 700 years, which is pretty mind-boggling.

Collector's market

The collectors' market is another Sunday morning market, held in the Plaza del Cabildo, off the Avenida de la Constitución. It's mostly coins and stamps, but items like military medals will turn up here too. Unless you're a collector yourself the location is probably more interesting than the market.

Art market

The art market in the Plaza del Museo outside the Fine Arts Museum is the third of the Sunday morning markets, and a visit here is a nice complement to going to the museum itself. It's not generally Michaelangelo, but if you're looking for a souvenir painting of something in Seville, this is the place to come. And if the vendor does turn out to be the next van Gogh, you'll be quids in.

Plaza del Duque Hippy market

From Wednesday to Saturday, outside the main El Corte Ingles. Big on handbags, belts and jewellery, filled out with the odd handcraft stall.

Charco de la Pava

Seville's famous/notorious Saturday morning flea market, which moved from the Alameda when it was renovated, and can now be found on the far side of Cartuja island. Essentially a second-hand market for just about everything, it's definitely caveat emptor.
