There are several streets in the centre of Las Arenas - Areeta where shoppers will find designer, decoration, fashion and big brand stores. Its boutiques are famous with a selection of the best international designers and small gourmet stores offering traditional Basque products.
The Mercado de Abastos de Algorta (Algorta Market) is a reference point for finding fresh produce just in from the market gardens of small local farmers and high quality meat and fish. It is located on Calle Torrene street, beside the Post Office.
In Algorta center and in the streets surrounding the market there are many retail stores offering all kinds of products and services you may require during your trip to Getxo.
Algorta market has a curious history dating from its construction in 1940. During the Civil War it was used as an air-raid shelter because it was one of the few concrete buildings in the town. Getxo residents took refuge in its basement every time the air-raid warning sirens sounded. It 2001, it was renovated, following the same architectural criteria (rationalist style) as before, but adapting it to the new times.
