This was a very interesting visit, the fruit and vegetables were of extremely good quality and value. The flowers were beautiful and exotic. The fish catch of the day varied, some of which we had not seen before

Fruit tasting interesting but we didn't like most of it! You can refuse to buy if prices go up when you are about to buy, and then they often go down again. Lift to first floor, where there are free toilets. Wine shops on ground...More

An interesting place to wander round but quite expensive to buy anything, having said that it is worthwhile to visit.

A few fish that looked tired, a wine shop, a greengrocer and a tourist tat shop is about all that there is, hardly a tourist attraction! Not worth the walk, and we only stayed across the road.

The fresh fish market is extensive, and fun. Vendors will describe their catch and you can watch them slice and prepare the cuts. The flower and vegetable market is very large and busy too. Again, there are an incredible variety of items, with friendly vendors....More

This is a fascinating market with gorgeous displays of flowers, fruit and vegetables, not to mention the very interesting fish market on the bottom floor. However, beware of the ‘freebies!’ Lots of stall vendors will be very willing to give you a sample of fruit...More

Nice market with a very nice outdoor play area for kids up to 8 years. It has a nearby cafe for parents to relax while kids run around in a gated playground with new play equipment.

Unlike the much larger market in Funchal, no one bothered us and we were free to wander around and enjoy looking at everything. Lovely mural on walls inside and out.
