  • 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.
