Poster for Arab Market in Benalmadena PuebloBenalmádena locals and visitors will be able to enjoy the best of Arab culture through its products and traditions. The narrow streets of Benalmádena Pueblo will be dressed in exotic fabrics and traditional Jaimas. Approximately 60 stalls will offer a wonderful choice of Arab products and arts such as spices, clothes, workshops, ceramics, calligraphy or sweet treats. If you also enjoy the exotic tastes of Arab gastronomy, you’ll find teas, Cous-Cous, falafels and other delicacies.

There’s lots of fun entertainment on the event’s programme too: Street Parades and performers; belly dancers; Workshops (archery, pottery, calligraphy), live music, traditional games and fun rides for the little ones!

The Arab Market official opening hours are as follows: From 12:00 pm to Midnight. Please note that from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm many of the stalls will remain closed (it’s too hot!) so it’s best to visit outside of these hours.

Don’t miss this fun and unique event this weekend. Take a trip back in time and experience true Arab culture. Let your senses explode with the aromas of the delicious food and dance to the hypnotic rhythm of the music.

See you at the ‘Zoco’!
