La Chana market
Unlike the posh Mercado San Agustín – situated in the city centre on the established tourist track – this Wednesday morning market is intended primarily for the residents of La Chana, a fact which is reflected in the ridiculously low prices. Vendors tout for business from the back of vans or on upturned boxes, and the atmosphere is every bit as chaotic and lively as you’d expect from one of Granada’s most densely-populated residential quarters. A good selection for fresh fruit and vegetables is on offer, as well as cheap clothing and basic household products. Arrive early (taking Calle Washington Irving off La Chana’s main drag, the Carretera de Malaga) for the best buys, because by lunchtime stallholders are ready to pack up and head for a cold beer and some tapas.
