Ambrosia Gourmet Market in Puerto Banus is a new gastronomic project that will be a reality on the 24th of July in Marbella and it will be the first gourmet market in Costa del Sol. It is situated in the urbanization La Alzambra, just next to the new and exclusive Cavalli Club only a few hundret meters from Puerto Banus.
With some similar experiences in Madrid, Barcelona or Córdoba, this entrepreneurship project emerges with an investment of one million euros and the creation of nearly one hundred direct jobs.
According to its leaders, they don’t only want this market to be just for tourists but also for the local citizens. This is why they intend to organize various cultural and culinary events to increase the offer to the public.
A total of one thousand square meters on two floors have been refurbished with an Andalusian atmosphere that is even more attractive for visitors. The official inauguration will take place on the evening of July 23 and from 9 am on Friday 24 the Ambrosía Mercado Gourmet will be open to the public.
The Ambrosia Gourmet Market will open every day, 365 days of the year, from Monday to Thursday from 10am to midnight and Friday to Sunday from 10am to 2am at night.
