Throughout the last year we published several articles about a new project in the province of Malaga, markets for organic fruit and vegetables, initiated by the organic farmer’s association “Guadalhorce ecologico”. This project that started relatively recently in the villages of the Guadalhorce Valley, also known as the “Orchard of Malaga”, is showing excellent health.
Only a year ago it was relatively difficult to go to an organic market, as this meant having to travel within the province, while the larger municipalities along the Costa del Sol lacked this offer. Well, we are pleased to inform you that this has changed, in no time, thanks to the excellent reception of this very healthy proposal and not necessarily more expensive as we tend to believe!
Here you can find the detailed list of organic markets in the province of Malaga, so that you know where you can buy fresh organic fruit and vegetables in your neighbourhood.
