The essence of the traditional Basque market

Learn about the essence of the traditional Basque market by visiting one of its main markets.

The Ordizia Market has been held every Wednesday for 500 years, making it one of the oldest markets in the Basque Country.

Don’t miss the visit every Wednesday. If possible, don’t miss the opportunity to visit it during the week of 9 September during the Basque Festivities, an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the unique Basque culture.

In this festivity the best Idiazabal cheese of the year is auctioned.

The Ordizia Market is renowned for setting the reference prices for agricultural products, especially Idiazabal cheese, throughout the region, influencing local and national markets. This market is not only a shopping district, but also a meeting hub and a place of tradition in the Basque community.
