Fresh fish, flowers, teas, oils etc. An interesting market to stroll around and lovely if you are self catering. Very busy with locals. Surrounding area full of people selling absolute junk though.

We like to visit the food market on a Sunday which is in a lovely building, and has well priced fruit, veg and flowers. There are also stalls selling jewellery and handcrafts. Small cafes sell Spanish tapas and drinks, and are very popular with the locals. Outside the building, in the streets leading down to the sea there is a... More

This is a nice market to browse for everything from flowers to fish or even rabbit meat. Their are many Butchers shops and a good produce and fruit shop with the fish market located on the lower level.

This market is colorful, bright and friendly. There are tons of stalls of flowers and local foods of all kinds. Definitely worth a look.

It's an ordinary market that can show you the gastronomy of the Canary Islands and a good plan for a Sunday because most of the food markets in Spain are closed on Sunday but it isn't,and it is surrounded by a flea market of second hand objects and clothes.

Nice local market with a wide range of spices, fruit, vegetables, fish, etc. The prices are higher than at a similar market in La Laguna but either way, it is still worth visiting. I liked the architecture of the building and the "statue" of a boat with fishermen just in front of it.

Bc it was Sunday, we thought the market was closed, but not at all! The stands were open even at noon and it was busy with locals. Normally all markets are closing down by noon. Do not miss the fish market underground. There are the best eating possibilities: shrimps and a glas Prosecco? Perfect!

Nice and clean marketplace where you can buy all Tenerifian (and non-tenerifian) good food. Italian icecream is the best. There is also nice playground where children can play while parents buying fruits and vegetables. I also recommended Tenerifian olive oil and Mojo.

Our Cruise ship stopped here at Santa Cruz. We visited this local market area and it was bustling with local people who go here to buy local produce etc. Also tourists visit this place to buy holiday goods and visit the bars and eateries. We stopped in the main square and had a drink. My wife had a large glass... More
