2. Street Markets
Street markets in Seville were one of my favorite ways to experience the city. I was able to write an in-depth article about a new street market, the Gran Soho Alameda, which takes place in one of Seville’s hip, alternative neighborhoods. There is also a variety of local and homemade products in street markets all around the city.
El Jueves—Calle Feria
Calle Feria is one of the most colorful areas of the city, and every Thursday morning there is a local market with lots of venders selling literally all kinds of things. Some may view the antiques as a little useless, but others may find hidden treasures among the unique knickknacks, vintage flamenco dresses, works of art and more. It is an interesting side of Sevilla, as the city’s oldest street market. It has been there for more than 700 years!
Gran Soho Alameda — La Alameda de Hercules
Every last Sunday of the month, the Gran Soho Alameda takes place in the heart of the Alameda de Hercules. From homemade jewelry and accessories to hand-painted artwork, the items at Gran Soho Alameda are beautiful and would make a perfect souvenir.
The Art Market
This market takes place in Plaza del Museo, outside the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville, every third Sunday morning. If you are looking for a painting of Seville or other traditional artwork (or something more modern), this where you should come! I was able to buy to a painting here and be inspired by the beauty of artwork in the city.
The “Hippie” Market
Located in Plaza del Duque, outside the department store, Corte Inglés, is a craft market (sometimes known as the hippie market). Here you will find items such as scarves, belts, leather bags and goods, wooden boxes, and shirts. It’s not as interesting as other markets in the city, but it is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday all day, so you may be able to stumble upon it!

What to Know Before You Shop: Time Schedules
In Sevilla, many people take a siesta time during the late afternoon, which means businesses regularly close around 2-5pm. Also, Spaniards typically get up later than other Europeans, so the work day starts around 9:30am, but business hours go later into the evening. Most stores (except some tourist shops) are also closed on Sundays. Sundays, though, can be a great time to explore street markets in the city!
Overall, there is excellent shopping in Seville, and it is easy to find some fun and local products to take home with you! The shopping scene also helps to get to know the local culture as you explore the vast creativity Seville has to offer.
