MANGOS DE LAS ABUELAS Mangos de las abuelitas en Nerja Yes people, the grandma’s mangoes !

There are many ways to buy your groceries in south of Spain, I can think of about 4 :

-From the supermarket, not necessarily a bad option by the way, lots of local products and cheap.

-From the groceries stores that one will find on every street, not necessarily the best option and not cheap.

-From the producers in the campo, definitely cheap and qualitative but not many of them close and you need a car.

-At last from the Abuelas (grand mothers) who open their front door in many streets in Nerja and sell their own fruits and vegetables.
Definitely cheap, qualitative, fun and practical !

So, most of them own a piece of land or some of their relatives do and they bring them their fruits and vegetables, eggs as well to sell on their doorsteps.
In a way they are like drug dealers in Compton LA in the movies but instead of being scary gang black dudes with gold teeth they are kind old spanish grannies, maybe with gold teeth too !

You can find many of these abuelitas in the streets that run at the back from the Caretera (Calle Angustias etc…) The one on the corner of the Guardia Civil building across from the mercadona does have the best mangoes I have every eaten in my entire life and I have eaten good mangoes and in mangoes paradise (I said that before in the Seychelles).

Sometimes, like my mango granny, they have only one type of fruit or vegetable, more often they have a few.

Anyways if you really want to eat fresh, local products at a reasonable price, take your time, walk around, buy yourself a stroller (Spanish people are not ashamed to own and use one even dudes and even young people), and shop around from the Abuelas !
