Nerja's magnificent collection of beaches, historical monuments, festivals, cultural events, and archaeological sites draw visitors in droves year after year. For this reason, many entrepreneurial individuals have decided to put up shop here.
Today, Nerja is packed with numerous commercial establishments, both big and small. Even narrow streets like the parallel alleys of Calle de la Pintada and Calle del Almirante Ferrandiz are dotted with tiny shops selling clothes, wine, trinkets, and posters. What you'll find below are some of the most frequented shops in town.
Panaderia Costa del Sol - a bakery along Calle Salvador Rueda (phone: 952 526709 );
Panaderia Sabores Pasteleria - a bakery along Calle de los Huertos;
Cafeteria Duque - a pastry shop along Calle de la Pintada (phone: 952 526719);
Rincon Natural - a herb shop along Calle del Bronce (phone: 952 52 35 03);

For consumer goods such as beverages, fruits, vegetables, bakery products, canned goods, cleaning products, personal hygienic items, cosmetics, and grocery items, there are supermarkets like:
Coviran, along Calle de los Huertos (phone: 952 524087); Mercadona, along Calle de San Miguel (phone: 952 526494); and Supermercado Mas, along Calle Antonio Ferrandis (Chanquete) (phone: 952 966097). Supermarkets are called Supermercados or Hypermercados.
Market days are held during Sundays and Tuesdays. The Tuesday market is where you can find fresh fruits and vegetables as well as new clothes. The Sunday market, on the other hand, is more of a car boot sale. You'll find the Sunday market mostly at Almijara II and the Tuesday market along Calle Antonio Milon.
Book worms can find cheap used books at the Nerja Book Centre, along Calle Granada. You can contact them at 952520908.
If all this does not satisfy your tastes, head out west on a 30-minute drive to the busy intersection connecting Torre del Mar and Velez-Malaga. There you'll find a big shopping center called El Inguenio. This large commercial establishment has its own shops, restaurants, banks, entertainment center, and movie houses. El Inguenio can be reached via the Autovia del Mediterraneo or A-7.
