Mercadona is a large supermarket that you will find across the whole of Spain. They stock fresh goods, frozen food, fish, meat and shelf items. Mercadona are fairly inexpensive with a wide range of products to choose from and they are expanding every year with more products and more choice.
They stock plenty of gluten-free, lactose-free and even vegan alternatives, and the list is growing ever longer every year.
Mercadona bakes fresh bread and patisserie every day, the stores are clean, well-stocked, easily manoeuvred and there’s also free parking for all customers.
If you’re new to Spain you will soon find that Mercadona is the main food retailer, with everything you need under one roof. There’s even an online delivery available for those who can’t make it to the store and need to stock up their cupboards.
The meat and fish is always on display in Mercadona, so you can pick the right product for you. The deli staff can also assist you if you need instructions how to cook the particular meat or fish you are purchasing.
Around Christmas time there’s always plenty of ‘Jamon Serrano’ and Christmas goodies for sale. This goes for almost every holiday, Easter, Valentine’s day, Halloween, etc.
There is always at least one English speaker amongst the staff at the branches, so if you have any queries or can’t locate something in store just look for the little English flag on their name badge and they will be able to assist you.
Mercadona is really reasonably priced and there is always one within walking or driving distance from you in most areas.
I have left the location of Mercadona in the Puerto del Mazarron on the map.
