|Busy bargain hunters|
I popped down mid morning to have a browse and chat to some of the stall holders there - apparently the real bargain hunters are there before 9am and stall holders are already setting up between 7.30 and 8.00am! There is certainly something for everyone here; ranging from rare antiques, clothing, a coin dealer, electrical items to general junk - you could spend an entire morning riffling through all the stalls - as was evident.
There is a real cross section of people too - from well dressed local Spanish to casual short & t-shirt British and Dutch holiday makers, everyone mingles side by side.

Just up the aisle there is a stall where you can get your haircut - and there was even a queue of customers waiting! Also on the same stall you can buy a wig or a ponytail extension to change your look for an evening out. See what I mean about being able to purchase anything!
As you spend the morning browsing you can pop by to one of the 2 bars located at the front of the rastro for a much needed drink and snack.
There you can have a plate of Spanish paella with bread for 3.50€ and I must say there were many people tucking in - it certainly smelt good.
Its not only me that was impressed with him, even fellow entertainers also agree. Asa Elliott, the singing sensation from the ITV Benidorm series tweeted me to say that "Pablo Bloom is the most talented man in Benidorm. Hands down". Asa is currently back in Benidorm due to huge public demand and can be heard performing most nights at 10pm in Sandra's.
