It's an ordinary market that can show you the gastronomy of the Canary Islands and a good plan for a Sunday because most of the food markets in Spain are closed on Sunday but it isn't,and it is surrounded by a flea market of second hand objects and clothes.

Nice local market with a wide range of spices, fruit, vegetables, fish, etc. The prices are higher than at a similar market in La Laguna but either way, it is still worth visiting. I liked the architecture of the building and the "statue" of a boat with fishermen just in front of it.

Bc it was Sunday, we thought the market was closed, but not at all! The stands were open even at noon and it was busy with locals. Normally all markets are closing down by noon. Do not miss the fish market underground. There are the best eating possibilities: shrimps and a glas Prosecco? Perfect!

Nice and clean marketplace where you can buy all Tenerifian (and non-tenerifian) good food. Italian icecream is the best. There is also nice playground where children can play while parents buying fruits and vegetables. I also recommended Tenerifian olive oil and Mojo.

Our Cruise ship stopped here at Santa Cruz. We visited this local market area and it was bustling with local people who go here to buy local produce etc. Also tourists visit this place to buy holiday goods and visit the bars and eateries. We stopped in the main square and had a drink. My wife had a large glass... More

Our Cruise stopped at Santa Cruz and we enjoyed our walk to the Mercado Municipal Nuestra Señora de Africa. There is a free public information centre as you enter the city. The lady was very kind in marking a map of local places to visit. No need to take a Hop On Hop Off Bus here. The Market was worth... More

Found this market whilst on a cruise stopover. It is set in a very attractive building and has a mixture of stalls including many selling local handicrafts. A good place to visit to find an unusual gift but also get a flavour of the local food culture.

This is a fantastic food market. All the food looks fresh and the food we tasted was absolutely fabulous. The prices are very cheap as well, especially considering the quality you get. I'd recommend to visit this place for lunch and just fill up on fruits.

Every time we have come to Santa Cruz, we have visited here, because it is so good. There is a huge range of local foodstuffs and products on display and many locals really shop here - it is not a fake rigged up for the tourists. The place really is a feast for the eyes and the nose - the... More
