I always enjoy visiting local markets. It is one of the best places you can observe local life without being intrusive. Therefore, not surprisingly, Tenerife’s municipal local market was a favorite for me. The architecture itself is enough to make you visit the place. You can also find local vegetables, fruits and fish for great prices. If your accommodation is self-catering like mine, this is the best place to go for your shopping. It is open until 2:00 pm every day. Go early and don’t forget to have a coffee in the courtyard after your shopping.
There is also a flea market outside the building. You can buy books in your language (found English, French and of course Spanish), some souvenirs and some other basics.
