Amores de mercado

Amores de mercado, also known as Love Affairs, Love at The Market and Tough Love, is a Spanish-language telenovela produced by the United States-based television network Telemundo and RTI Colombia. This limited-run series ran for 125 episodes from June 14, 2006 to January 12, 2007. It aired in Europe and the Middle East on Zone Romantica.

This show was retitled simply Amores in mid-run. Head writer Basilio Alvarez was replaced by Eric Vonn and the storylines and characters went in a new direction. When Telemundo reaired the show in daytime in 2009, the shorter title was used for the entire series.


Amores de mercado tells the story of Fernando (Mauricio Islas), an ambitious man who driven by greed will do the unimaginable to his own family, Lucia (Paola Rey), a woman in search of her husband, and Diego (Michel Brown), an athlete who feels defeated by life. Lucia and Diego will meet and find a reason to love again and start over in life, however, destiny will put them to the test. This is a story of second chances and how love can save us when everything else is lost.
