Fab indoor market, so much fresh fruit and veg and lovely produce. Definitely worth a look around even if you don't buy anything. Good place to go if you're on a cruise and don't fancy the beach.

Great to spend an hour looking around Mercado Central in Alicante; a bustling market with stalls selling fresh fish, seafood, vegetables, fruit and (upstairs) meat. The market has all the smells and noise you'd expect. There are several small cafes, but alas, we didn't have time to linger.
As you go up the stairs to the meat section, look up - the structure of the roof is stunning.

Visited this market nearly every day, the produce on display is so fresh and nicely presented.
So much choice, cakes, fish, meats, cheeses, deli, fruit n vegetables to. There are two floors to browse round.
Great place for fresh produce and all your senses.

amazing and authentic, much fresher than any supermarkets and the fruit and vegetables are cheaper in various stalls. One thing I dont like it the fact that some stalls dont show you the price of their produce per kilo and this is illegal, a seller has to show how much the product costs to the end user.

Fab place, loads of fresh food options and places to grab a glass of wine on way round :) Lovely experience and used for our food shop while staying in area.
