Global Foods, Stores, & Shops

Where can you purchase international food or products from around the globe?  If you are a foreigner living here on the Costa Tropical, it is likely that once in a while you may miss some of your favorite foods from home.   You may not be able to go out to a restaurant to find them or maybe you just want to make that one dish that reminds you of home.  There are a few places to get some imported items around town, in the Costa Tropical, or in the general area.

There are several locations to purchase products, so we will just name a few.  We have a full post on grocery stores and supermarkets with locations and hours.

Olivares

Olivares has a small selection of imported foods.  It is located on Av. Juan Carlos.  Please see our directory for more info.

Aldi

Often has a few random products.  They tend to have seasons for the international type foods.  Just around the new year tends to be the season for the Asian spices and sauces, then there is a season for Greek, Italian, and so on.  These items are usually located next to the aisles of “random items” and it is fun to try and figure out the seasons for the food.  If it is in this section, buy it when you see it as it may not be back until next year at that time.

Al Campo

This is a standard large store like Tesco, Walmart, or any of the other multipurpose markets.  The nearest is located in Motril and they also offer online ordering.  They do have an international aisle with plenty of sauces, Asian and Mexican products and also carry a wider variety of spices and produce.  This is where we find our corn tortillas, Teriyaki sauces, spicy sauces, Indian sauces, spring onions, bean sprouts, and more.  Please see our directory for more info.

Dealz

Located in Motril or Nerja.  Dealz is UK Poundland, operating in Spain under the name Dealz, selling Spanish and international brands.

Supersol

Supersol usually has a small selection of international sauces and products.  The nearest location is in Salobreña or Motril, but you will likely find a few more UK-friendly products in the Nerja locations.
