Moncarapacho market is held on the first Sunday of every month, very close to the town centre. It’s a large gathering of market stalls, fruit & veg, fish, clothes and everything else you’d expect to find. People come from far and wide to see what’s on offer, and it’s also a great place to meet up with friends over a bite to eat...


Moncarapacho town is easy to find, and you won’t have any difficulty finding the market. On market day, the roads will be unusually busy with parked cars, and people walking to the market, so if you’re coming by car, it’ll be a case of park where you can ! If you click on the last picture below, we have labelled a map showing you the roads into Moncarapacho, and highlighting exactly where the market is located.


Enough said... Enjoy the photos...
