Fresh fish, flowers, teas, oils etc. An interesting market to stroll around and lovely if you are self catering. Very busy with locals. Surrounding area full of people selling absolute junk though.

This is a nice market to browse for everything from flowers to fish or even rabbit meat. Their are many Butchers shops and a good produce and fruit shop with the fish market located on the lower level.

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.

Santa Cruz is the other side of the island from Puerto de la Cruz, so you would need to go by car or by bus. At least an hour's travel but suggest you check a map and bus timetable (horario).
Do you know how far this market is from the cruise terminal please?

Hello I think it is approximately 2km away so by walking around 30 minutes I would say. Hope that helps. Mariane
