I was really looking forward to a bustling tapa market like in Madrid or Barcelona. But when I arrived at 10:00pm on a Friday night it was empty, already closed.
Seems odd that for a country that thrives on eating late and every tapa around the area packed and busy to close so early is very odd.

We came here during the week at early lunch time and it was very quiet - i think that maybe it would be better in the evening. We preferred the food market Atarazanas which had more fresh produce - this is more of a collection of tapas bars.

This refurbished market is located in front of picassos's house and kudos to those who had the idea of renovating it to convert it into a "tapas" place. The market still has a section for buying veggies, etc but the part facing the plaza has several stands that serves from serrano ham to fresh fish or sushi. Just go from one stand to another and I assure you, you will enjoy it (It also serves alcohol)-

It is nothing glamour but it is full of life, and flavors, and love, and happiness. I love the markets in Malaga.
