Markets in Tenerife South

Markets in Southern Tenerife can be divided into fresh produce markets, clothing markets and flea markets. If you want to find a fish market in Tenerife South these are also covered, though they’re unlike the average markets. These have only a kiosk or a couple of stalls selling freshly caught seafood. 

Fresh Produce Markets

The freshest fruit and vegetables can be found at this sort of food market in Tenerife. All produce is locally grown, unlike at the island’s “fruterias” where imported produce is also sold. 

Foodstuffs like cheese, honey, eggs, wine, and homemade sweets are also available.

Agromercado de Adeje 

Agromercado de Adeje has 35 stalls. It’s not our number one choice, as prices can be higher here, perhaps as it’s advertised to tourists. But if it’s near where you’re staying, this fruit market in Tenerife is certainly worth a visit.

Fishermen drop off their daily catch here throughout the morning and afternoon. If you cannot find what you want, then you can simply await the next fishing boat. Generally another one will call by every quarter of an hour or so.
