Just a scruffy little market with very little that you would want to buy! There are not a huge amount of stalls but they sell from meat and cheese to jewellery made out of recycled plastic. Unless you are just stopping here on the way to somewhere else I really wouldn't recommend going to it!

Part of an island tour, we visited this little market.Outside across the road was a beautiful wooded area with benches and tables for picnics, and also a BBQ area. Very pretty area. There are some view points where you can walk to the end and look down into the valley, they also have a glass area at the end where... More

It's not a large market but is a well-presented collection of stalls of local produce with a nice local 'buzz'. All indoors when we visited in March but I would guess that the fairly large outside area is utilised later in the season. We enjoyed a visit on a Sunday morning and bought local goat's cheese, olives, honey, a jar... More

Sat and sun have the same stalls. The queso crudo excellent as is the meat, fresh produce, honey and bread. The cakes were certainly popular although we didn't try the. Everything sold there must be local. Some interesting local crafts too. Well worth a visit. Think it is 3-7 Saturday's and 11-3 Sunday's.

More than just a market, this place is a social gathering spot where all the rural residents come together on Saturday afternoons. There are events like chess competitions and cheese tasting contests. Outside are personal stalls, like a car-boot sale. There'll often be some musicians playing simply for fun. Inside stalls include fruit, vegetables, meat, cheese, wine, cakes, and arts... More

Only open on Saturdays and Sundays, the opportunity to support the local economy. I bought friut and veg, also meat (delicious), olives (delicious!), cheese (delicious!), Verga Norte wines (delicious!). I thought the pottery, leather goods etc. were overpriced and under imaginative. I had a sugar cane and rum Mojita: quite a kick!!

It's a few years since we last went to the weekend market at Puntagorda. My impressions then were that the few stall in the inside market almost rattled about. However, since a return visit last month, we were mightily impressed with the variety and volume of goods on offer. Several stalls were selling lovely fresh veg and the oranges we... More

Not exactly an exciting market, but worth seeing if it as part of a more extensive trip to other parts of the island. While there you should try one of the many drinks made from La Palma's sugar cane - very sweet but very tasty.

This was the probably the most pointless stop on the coach tour. Toilets good. A very small Sunday market where the local produce and food for sale was excellent quality. Hippie "art/pottery" etc. on offer was disappointing, expensive and some of it, arguably, imported. £50 for a cup, saucer and plate???
