Markets in Argelès-sur-Mer we'll take a bite out of the south

In Argelès-sur-Mer, the Catalan spirit shines through in the market stalls.
A good excuse for a stroll!

On the Catalan coast, we love markets. Do you know how? When they’re packed with entertainment and seasonal produce!
Whether you like it organic, artisanal, traditional or night-time, you’re bound to find a market to suit your taste in Argelès-sur-Mer. You’ll be amazed…

Five markets, five unique atmospheres

Traditional, organic, night-time, local or artisanal… Argelès-sur-Mer has a market for every taste. And an atmosphere that’s lived and breathed! Whether in the village market or on the beachfront, our stalls catch the eye and tantalize the taste buds of visitors. Black olives, tangy citrus fruits or freshly harvested tomatoes… The colorful boxes are brimming with seasonal fruits and vegetables. And produce to take home!

Night owls beware

Are you a late riser? Cap problema*! During the summer season, the night market opens its doors in Port-Argelès. No need to choose between the beach and the market when you can do both!

*No problem!

Meeting, sharing, (eating) : the Catalan spirit

A trip to the market is the perfect opportunity to fill your shopping basket… and your address book! In Argelès-sur-Mer, a stroll along the market stalls is always synonymous with wonderful encounters. At the farmers’ market, our local vendors will be delighted to tell you all about the gourmet history of their products. It’s a great way to share.

Want to combine a wicker basket with a taste of the sea? Head for the Argelès harbour market, where fish is sold directly all year round. Freshly harvested sea bream, red mullet and octopus await you each morning in the caissons of our passionate fishermen. The result is a lively discussion.

Fishing to memories

Do you know how to find local souvenirs? During the summer season, Argelès-sur-Mer’s evening craft market is the ideal place to find that rare gem. Jewelry, cork handbags or handmade soaps… the stalls are packed with nuggets to slip into your suitcase. And don’t forget the warm atmosphere and entertainment that will make you want to extend your vacation in Argelès-sur-Mer.

Bullinada, crema catalana and bunyetes, bon profit*!

Once you’ve filled your basket, it’s time to try your hand at a few traditional recipes. Starting with bullinada, a comforting dish rich in vitamins and minerals. To prepare it, you’ll need to stock up on fresh fish. Mussels, monkfish and cuttlefish: we don’t skimp on quantity in Argelès-sur-Mer. Top it off with a few potatoes and garlic from the organic market, and all that’s left to do is simmer!
