Shopping in Restábal. We always like to visit local shops and markets when we’re on holiday. How about you? Do you prefer large supermarkets or the smaller, local places? In small villages like Restábal, the shops are an important part of village life. Not just from a commercial and economic point of view. For many of the elderly, shopping can be their main social activity during the week. Gossip, politics and a wry sense of humour can make a visit to the local supermarket a source of entertainment.
Shopping in Restábal
Although the population of Restábal only numbers about 400 souls, the village boasts two supermarkets, a bakery, a tobacconist and a chemist. As well as all these, local tradesmen visit daily in their little vans offering an assortment of goods such as bread, fish, eggs and charcoal. What’s more, every Saturday is market day with three or four stalls selling shoes and slippers and household goods. Visitors are always welcome and soon become known to the shop owners and their regular customers. Don’t hesitate to mention you are staying at Casa Tagomago, they’ll find out anyway!
