While Fuengirola’s food market (La Galleria Gastro Mercado) may not boast such a historic and spectacular building as one in Malaga, it’s certainly well worth stopping by if you’re exploring Fuengirola’s old town.
In this article, I will offer a short summary of what you can expect to see inside.
La Galleria Gastro Mercado: The Building
Walking into La Galleria feels like stepping into a blend of a traditional Spanish market and a modern-day food court.
The space is beautifully designed with a mix of rustic wooden tables and sleek, contemporary décor. The open-concept layout gives you the perfect sneak peek into each vendor’s kitchen, making the food preparation part of the experience.
The Vendors & Shops
La Galleria is a treasure trove of international flavors. Feeling like sushi tonight? They’ve got it.
More in the mood for some traditional paella? Say no more.
From artisanal cheeses and gourmet sandwiches to delicious Asian stir-fries and mouth-watering desserts, this place has got something for everyone.
One of the best things about La Galleria is that it’s not just a tourist spot; locals love it too.

Admittedly, I haven’t eaten here yet as it’s always very busy and super loud, but give them a try and let me know in the comments how you liked the food!
It’s a hotspot for foodies, families, and anyone looking to soak up the rich tapestry of flavors and experiences that this charming town has to offer.
Take a stroll through the market next time you’re in Fuengirola’s old town! The market is right opposite the big old Correos building, next a few of my favourite restaurants like Picoteo and Casa Pasta.
