    Our hosts recommended this market and it was fabulous. We arrived at about 9.30 and it was quite busy - there weren’t many spaces left in the car park. It was even busier when we left at about 11.00 so worth going early.
    We walked all round first before returning to buy. Selection was excellent - tomatoes of many types, peppers fresher than any I’ve ever seen in England, aubergines and courgette of many shapes and sizes. Canary potatoes too. All this accompanied by goats cheese stalls and a good fishmonger and butcher, cake stalls, and herbs. I felt like Rick Stein choosing produce to cook that night!
    We were a bit worried about buying meat and not refrigerating it straight away but we bought a cool bag at the fish stall which the lady filled with ice. This stayed frozen for 4 hours in the boot of our car. If you’re self catering this is a must visit. If you’re not you could still purchase a cake or two.

    We are self catering in Puerto de la Cruz, so a farmer's market is the place for fresh fruit and veg. We had tried the one in Puerto, but it is more a set of greengrocer shops than a real farmer's market (though it is particularly worth a visit for the large car boot/market also there on a Saturday.)

    The market in La Oratava is more to our liking. It is open from 8am till 1.30pm every Saturday. Each stall has the name of the Finca so you know (or locals do!) where the produce is grown. Some stall holders speak a little English, but it easy enough to get by even when they don't. The produce is labelled with the price, so you know how much things are.

    Things are really fresh (leaves are unwilted in the heat, so just picked) and cheap. A lady sells great cakes such as carrot cake, cherry tart, chocolate cake, 80 cents a slice.

    Sometimes there are musicians, and there is a friendly cafe outside, a white coffee is €1, they also do rolls and snacks.

    You can park in the large car park just next door, or the bus stop back to Puerto is close by. The market is up the hill at the top of the town, and is well signposted.

    You can walk down from the market to La Oratava to look round (there is an easy path down through some waste ground). There are some charming old houses and a really lovely park which is full of well tended flowers. Next to the park is an outpost of the Puerto Botanic Garden, smaller but free.

    If you like farmer's market and love the chance to buy fresh local produce while interacting with local people, this is for you. We went in July and there was lots of amazing local fruit, veg, baked goods and flowers available. The tomatoes and bakery products were amazing and the price of vegetables was ridiculously cheap (compared to Ireland).

    By 10am all the fish was sold, but most other things were in good supply.

    The market is located in San Juan Perales, under 10 mins drive from Tacoronte centre. About half way between Tacoronte and Valle de Guerra.

    I completely get that looking at vegetables is not everyone's idea of a holiday excursion! However if you are a real foody who loves buying / cooking with authentic ingredients, this is worth it. There's also the chance to buy local honey, 'medicinal wine', table wine and all other bits and bobs. On the day we went there were maybe 3 or 4 stalls selling handmade crafts - no tourist tat.

    Free clean toilets available inside, parking is a bit difficult (basically park your car as soon as you see the line of parked cars appearing), the bus from Tacoronte stops right outside and there is a good Churreria (selling the traditional thick unsweetened Churros, not the stuffed ones) close by.

    No ATM here - I'm guessing the nearest money machines are in Tacoronte or there is one in Valle de Guerra.

    Unlike many UK farmers' markets this one does feature home producers who don't trick out their goods in fancy jars and labels. There's a large fruit and veg offer, a butcher where you can buy a whole kid goat, bread and bakery goods and three eateries.

    One small stall sells a drinkable glass of red wine and pinchos for a €1 or you can upgrade that to a larger racion and small jug. The chicken was delicious. We went on two occasions and also ate in the small restaurant. Our plate of freshly sliced warm leg of pork with bread and a couple of beers was exactly what we wanted. There's another food outlet which was busy, it's more ad hoc and you'll need Spanish to get the best experience. They were selling wine with a variety of tapas.

    If you want to pick up a local vibe I can recommend this for a Sunday morning visit.

    Tegueste is a small village in the north end of Tenerife just a few minutes from the coast. It is easily reached by car or local buses from Los Legunas or Santa Cruz.
    Historically, this was an agricultural area and still remains so to a significant extent as witnessed by the terraces on the hills around the village. Major crops include grapes, tomatoes, potatoes, salad greens, all the usual vegetables. Local products include cheese, jams, red, white and rose wines, bread and pastries.
    Saturday and Sunday, 9 until 1, the Mercado offers all of these things at a central market on the main street.
    The quality of the produce is excellent and prices are very reasonable. You can also buy local meat and chicken, eggs and fresh herbs. Organic fruit and vegetables are also available. There are several stalls offering local crafts and a coffee/snack sitting area.
    This is a small, friendly market; a chance to support local producers while purchasing really tasty, just harvested food. Check it out and then, take a walk around Tegueste. It's a lovely little community with a pedestrians only main street, several good bakeries and restaurants and outdoor cafes.

    The local market stalls inside the main building offer a great variety of food and drink and the cafes are excellent for people watching. However the outside market and that on the roof are really car boot level and you’ll be lucky to find a bargain. Also predominantly German biased.
