This indoor market is how food should be bought, there is a fantastic selection of fresh food, and the seafood section is just incredible, both the quality and vast selection of fish and shellfish is just brilliant. there are other sections selling a vast array of fresh and dried produce. If I lived in Alicante, this would be a regular stop.

This is a great place to spend a couple of hours. Fish and cheese market is downstairs and the meat and fruit / veg upstairs. There are escalators and stairs to get you between floors. Virtually every cut of meat you could wish for and some very strange looking shellfish...stall holders are very friendly...

Tons of fresh fish, meat, poultry, vegetables and fruits. Neatly arranged, wonderfully displayed. What a joy it gave us to buy these fresh ingredients and make a wonderful meal out of them. We wish we had one in our neighborhood!
