We arrived around 12.45, and most of the stalls were already closed. However, we saw some interesting-looking fruit .

a great traditional market, you can smell incredible tastes of spices, fruits and vegetables almost everywhere. A bit crowded but that's an amazing place

This is a really good local market which is also a fascinating visit for tourists to see local produce and sellers. I wish I lived nearby! It has stalls selling meat and fish, charcuterie products, cheese, fruit and vegetables and pasta as well as snacks...More

Pretty overrated in the guide books - interesting if you are passing but definitely not worth a detour

This market serves locals and visitors alike. It was interesting to see all the local produce beautifully displayed, in particular the fish stalls on the lower floor. Definitely worth a visit if you are staying in town.

Very busy market, especially on Sundays when there is also a flea market close to market hall. All kinds of food, flowers, fish, bars, herbs, coffee, tea, fruits, canarian products, vegetables...Very interesting, clean and recently renovated place with very local feeling.

An African style market with lods of shops and of every variety. You are having shops, road side stalls and fake goods stalls also. Some good eateries also in there. You won't be disappointed. Just walking distance from bus station.

Santa Cruz is the other side of the island from Puerto de la Cruz, so you would need to go by car or by bus. At least an hour's travel but suggest you check a map and bus timetable (horario).

Hello I think it is approximately 2km away so by walking around 30 minutes I would say. Hope that helps. Mariane
