Benijofar has a huge offer as shops go with some of them being aimed for the expats that live in the vecinity, mainly British and Dutch. As you enter Benijofar from Ciudad Quesada, we have a large Mercadona with plenty of parking space. Mercadona is much like Sainsburys or Tescos in the UK and represents Spain’s biggest supermarket chain. As you drive into the town itself of Benijofar, you will find different shops, ranging from butchers, grocers, hardware shop, bakeries as well as the local pharmacy. Add to this, the 2 banks (Caja Rural and Banco Sabadell), make Benijofar a very complete town even though it has no more than 4000 inhabitants.
Also worth mentioning are several furniture stores, kitchen suppliers, tobacconist, gift shops, hair salons…etc, all offering a friendly service.
Many of the amenities at Benijofar are run by UK and Dutch nationals and offer an alternative for buying those home grown items you can’t get in the local supermarkets, although many are beginning to supply more and more international foods and beverages. The weekly market (Tuesday mornings) is a great place to buy fresh fruit and veg at a cheaper price than many greengrocers, so that is definitely a place to be once a week.
