If you are looking for fresh and reasonably priced local produce, you don’t need to go far at all. There is a grocery store Super Pirineos in the immediate proximity of the apartment located at the parallel Calle de Echegaray, fish shops Manoli or El Cay at Calle de los Reyes Catolicos, selling fresh seafood at incredibly low prices and a butcher at the same street or at nearby Calle Pascual Junquera. Otherwise, Conil has quite some number of supermarkets, closest of which are Dia, Eroski (both near the main tourist office) and Supersol (Calle Rosa de los Vientos). More on the periphery of the town are large chains such as Mercadona (they have an impressive selection of fish and seafood) or Aldi. Watch out, grocery stores are normally closed on Sundays; however small grocers tend to be open – for instance Hiper Ortega with a deli counter and fresh bread, conveniently located at Calle Pascual Junquera is open on Sunday until 1pm.

In general, there is a great variety of shops in the old town of Conil, ranging from surf wear shops, jewelery and craft stalls to chic clothing boutiques. For those craving for international press, just visit Libreria La Canailla at C/ Prieta.

There is an outdoor market every Friday morning at the car park by Mercadona supermarket with variety of stalls selling everything from olives to shoes to dodgy replicas and trinkets. Locals and tourists alike come here to look for good bargains and to enjoy the lively atmosphere of the market.

In case you fancy Andalucian pottery, El Colorado on the outskirts of Conil, famous for its ceramics is the place to be (look for the signs ‘Ceramica – Viveros’ on the main road N-340).

For those, who are in need of a real shopping therapy there is a large shopping mall Bahia Sur  in San Fernando with over 100 different stores. Otherwise, if you get a shopping urge when visiting Jerez, you can head to another gigantic shopping centre Luz Shopping.
