Where to buy in Jávea and surroundings

El Mercat del Riurau de Jesús Pobre

The most famous market of local producers in the region takes place every Sunday of the year under a monumental riurau in Jesús Pobre, in a magical rural atmosphere that will make you come back again and again. Farmers, pottery and leather craftsmen, bakers, wine makers, cheese makers and craft beer brewers come together to sell their products with the aim of boosting the local economy and offering visitors a sustainable and environmentally friendly trade alternative.

Opening hours: from 1 July to 20 September, on Sunday mornings. The rest of the year, on Sunday afternoons.

The Municipal Market of Xàbia

One of those places you can’t miss when you come to Jávea: some say that you haven’t visited a place if you haven’t been to its market first thing in the morning. And we corroborate this! This is where you will capture the essence of our town, because you will be able to buy the typical products or order the most traditional tapas. A piece of advice: don’t leave without trying the “cocas” from La Coquetería del Mercat.

The craft shops of Gata de Gorgos

The neighbouring village of Gata de Gorgos is a reference point for lovers of esparto, straw and wicker crafts. Make a stop in its craft shops to buy decorative items for your home, summer baskets or espadrilles.

Sea by Jessica Bataille

Our shop in the port is the place to find inspiration for decorating your home, where you can find everything from Mediterranean furniture to candles, cushions and decorative objects.

Portal del Clot Fruit Shop

One of our favourite places to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, straight from the fields to the table! Let them advise you, because they will fill your basket with seasonal products.

The Xàbia fish market

This is the place where, before mid-afternoon, all the boats arrive to unload all the fish and seafood they have caught that day. You can see it live (it’s a unique experience!) and you can also buy the freshest fish and seafood in the fish market shop.

La Sana Bakery

The best bread in the region is made by Rosa and Dunia in this small bakery, with sourdough and a lot of love. Order the bread, because at weekends there are long queues at the door… and their special bread (different every weekend) flies. Don’t miss their cinnamon rolls or focaccia.

Les Freses

Where once there was a strawberry field, today there are vineyards of muscatel and other autochthonous grapes… and one of the most recommended wineries in the area. Next to the Montgó Natural Park, just 8 kilometres from Jávea, in a small village called Jesús Pobre, we find Les Freses: Mara Bañó’s wine project, which produces wines fermented with her own yeasts in stainless steel tanks, demijohns or clay amphorae. Their guided tours, including wine tasting, are one of the essential plans to soak up our essence.


Kees and Marc’s flower shop is another essential stop if you want to give a bouquet as a gift or buy flowers for your home.

El Zaguán shoe shop

If you want to find fashionable shoes made in Spain, this is the place for you. Alicia has been selling beautiful shoes, clothes and accessories at El Zaguán for more than two decades.

La Espina Florist

Bouquets, plants or wreaths (and beautiful initials) of dried flowers to decorate: in La Espina you will find everything you want from the floral world and, in addition, local gourmet products, such as extra virgin olive oil, mistela, artisan vermouth or chocolate.

Although the list is endless, because (fortunately) in Jávea there are always places to discover…
