You will find many international brands in this upscale town, but the Nueva Andalucía Flea Market, Avenida Manolete, next to the bullring in Puerto Banús, is of much more local interest. It’s one of the largest and most colorful flea markets on the Costa del Sol. More than 120 vendors offer their merchandise on Saturdays from 9am to 2pm. If you’d like to purchase some of Andalucía’s regional ceramics, a good bet is Cerámica San Nicolás, Plaza de la Iglesia, 1 (tel. 95-277-05-46). For a serious piece of art, Galleria d’Arte Van Gestel, Plaza de los Naranjos, 11 ([tel. 95-277-48-19), in the Old Town is one of the most established galleries in Marbella. It’s worth stopping in just to see how harmoniously contemporary art fills the spaces of a historic home.
