The main market of Alicante, located in a building that occupies an entire city block. The shopping malls are located on two floors - one sells meat of all possible types and shapes, the other houses numerous counters with seafood, fish, vegetables and fruits. The market also has a large section with wines, cheeses, olives, spices, nuts and all kinds of sweets.

Brilliant market, great variety of foods all well presented with decent prices. Well worth the visit just to view it. The seafood section is particularly good and potentially free parking see my photos
Wow, an incredible market!
Worth visiting even if you don’t have a plan to buy something
I just spend 30 mins or more watching to shops and what products they sell

Fantastic food market in the heart of Alicante. Head here for an authentic atmosphere and to buy some of the best food products of Spain. There's also a selection of small, friendly sit-by restaurants on the edges of the market.
I love to visit the local markets when I go to a new town and see what the locals buy, and shop like a local. This market certainly didn't disappoint. Great tapas and wine at local prices. Well worth a visit.

Importantly most fish sellers are honest and gave me change back because i made lots of mistakes using the euros.
