Whilst I don´t like the markets where you can buy the entire range of Gucci, Burberry or Louis Vuitton knockoffs, I am a sucker for a good fruit and veg stall. I do my shopping at the weekly Farmers markets in Las Chafiras or Adeje. Sometimes while visiting other areas around the island, if I see a market I usually call in. Why? Because I know, the produce is as fresh as it could possibly be and in many cases, it is organic too.
As much as I use the markets in Tenerife, unfortunately I don´t have a single photo, probably because I am thinking about what we are likely to eat in the days ahead rather than about seeing a mouth-watering feast of succulent fruit and vegetables. Nevertheless, wherever I am on holiday, I make a point of seeking out where the locals buy their produce. I have been to markets that are only a couple of stalls, or even a few boxes of freshly picked vegetables; markets that are a mix of food and clothes, books etc. and markets that are huge tourist attractions like those in Barcelona and Rome.
There is a comprehensive list of Markets (both Farmers and the other kind!) on the last page of my Things to Do each month blog. So if like me you like your food fresh or you want to find a bargain, take a look
