Also called “Aro Market”, the Platja d´Aro local market is plenty of freshfruit, vegetables, pulses, salt fish, dried fruit and nuts, spices, cooked dishes, clothing, shoes, accessories, hardware, gifts, etc.
Every Friday all year round, dozens of stalls fill the Masia Bas, in the public parking lot of Platja d’Aro, to offer a wide range of bright and seasonal products to residents, visitors and tourists.
In Catalonia, fairs and markets have been held since before the middle ages. These were established due to the need for a meeting point for traders and buyers and they continue to this day. Despite the passage of time, they still provide a centre for social coordination, a meeting point for buyers and sellers, an agora, where the products are displayed directly and where one can still establish, on many occasions, direct contact with the producer.
