FOOD lovers rejoice, a brand new gourmet gastro-market has officially opened on the Costa del Sol.
Estepona’s up-market Mercado Gourmet de San Luis opened its doors on Wednesday and is set to put the beach-side town on the Costa foodie map, offering products like prestigious ‘Amelie’ oysters, the finest jamon Iberico and an area dedicated to Japanese cuisine.
Housed in the town’s former market hall, the building has been transformed into a gourmet emporium with restaurants, cocktail and beer bars, a cafe, a wine shop and a spacious terrace on Villa Street, with a ‘chill-out’ zone.
Extra reinforcement work meant the budget to refurbish the old building rose from €600,000 to €1.6 million.
It is expected to create around 75 jobs.
Correction: A previous version of this article said the budget rose from €60,000 to €1.6 million
