    Great market we bought fruit, vegetables, meat, bread and cakes ... all good, fresh and cheap. City market, there are locals but tourists in a friendly manner and honest! There are two plans: pt fish and meat-pi vegetables.

    As say you that you regret having waited the last day to go... Quality and affordable prices on all sides, (€10 a one kilo of charcuterie assortment and 500g of cheese...), if you are greedy or just curious to discover Spanish food, do not hesitate, go for it!

  • Really good traditional market. Loads of meat, cheese, veg and bread. Get there before 1.30ish as the place closes around 2. Perfect for packed lunch ingredients to take to the beach or if you are making evening meal yourself rather than going out.
  • This proper Spanish market is a fascinating visit for any tourist. Even if you're not shopping for meat or vegetables, it's great to see the variety of meat and offal eaten in Spain and Alicante in particular. British tourists who are used to shrink wrapped reddened meat from the supermarket, may not be tempered by brains or eyeballs, but the hams are fabulous and there are cheeses you can't get back home.
  • Great place. Bought some iberico ham and ended up tasting a few beers other hams and cheeses.
  • Food amazing..ambience a little disappointng...modern conctete block feel
  • Traditional Spanish market where Spaniards buy their fresh groceries. Vegetables, meat and fish all fresh. It only needs a bit of a younger crowd.
