Atarazanas Market Bar • Atarazanas, 10
The current Atarazanas market was originally a Nazari shipyard built in the 14th century. Subsequently, it was used as a warehouse, arsenal, military hospital and barracks, until today where its facilities host many stalls where you can learn about the quality of Malaga products, both Mediterranean fish and seafood and fruits, vegetables and meats from their different regions.
Many of them can be tasted in the Mercado bar, in the heart of the enclosure. The most popular ones are the skewers of prawns, octopus or tuna, as well as the fried pescaíto in olive oil like the boquerones. In addition to that, they prepare delicious fried fish and fried aubergines with Frigiliana cane honey (click here to see the recipe). Everything can be accompanied by a fresh beer or a glass of Malaga white wine.
On Saturdays, they also usually make paella. A great place to understand the idiosyncrasies of Malaga and Andalusia.
