The weekend market of Vega de San Mateo in the mountains is a popular place to visit by locals and visitors with its over 90 stalls ( currently reduced due COVID-19).

Open from Friday to Sunday you can find a big market warehouse building as well as outside stalls and occasional music and dancing during summer. Local farmers selling a wide selection of seasonal vegetables, fruit but also cheese, wine and much more. Outside area offers stalls selling an interesting array of different products from handcrafts, clothes, bags among others.

 

The market and surrounding area is undergoing major renovations and improvements. The opening of an underground parking on la Plaza del Mercado – Los Gofiones ( just after the little bus station ) has improved the traffic and parking on a busy day like a market day.

At the same time take the opportunity to stroll along the old quarter of the Vega de San Mateo, visit the Parish Church, located in the Calle Principal and enjoy a lovely lunch in one of the restaurants near by.
