Spanish Trolley Dash
If you're coming on holiday to Marbella and are staying in a self-catering apartment or a villa then the chances are that you'll need to go to a supermarket but you will have no idea what the items that you need are called in Spanish. We've put together a handy little list to help you and make you're supermarket shop as quick as possible so you can get back to the beach in no time!

When it comes to spirits, you can of course buy the brands that you know and love but there are some cheaper brands used by locals that are just as good.
When you go to the supermarket, it's best to head to a Mercadona or Lidl for the bulk of your shopping. Supersol can help with some of your needs but can be a little pricey and even though Opencor is open 365 days a year, ideally only go there when the others are shut as it can be a lot more expensive. All supermarkets charge for plastic bags (under 5 cents per bag) so if you don't want to pay, bring your own and if you want to pay by card make sure you have ID with you as you will be asked for it.
