It looks as though this old building has been restored relatively recently and it houses a fabulous market. Fish, veg, meat all fresh and little cafes inside and out. Obviously mostly a locals place but the vendors were very helpful in recommending things to try....More

I have reviewed this because of the wonderful building. A superb structure in the centre of Alicante which houses the central market, which as we found to our cost closes mid afternoon for the day. So make sure you get there early enough. The building...More

I was looking forward to seeing the Mercado Central in Alicante. Sadly, when we got to the Market, it had just closed. We got there at 2.35 pm and the market closed at 2.30 pm. Go early to avoid disappointment.

Stopped off the tourist bus to visit the indoor market. 1st floor, lots of choice of meat, ham etc. Bought Turron from a small independent stall holder, excellent. Ground floor fish , fruit and vegetables, all of super fresh quality. Well worth a visit.

2 floors of meat, fish, eggs, fruit and veg, bakery and even a cafe where for 3 euros they will cook and serve up anything you have bought at the market! The prices are a bit higher than we are used to in the 'outback'...More

Really easy. It's a 5 minute walk on one road heading towards past the Praça Lucerne. Or a taxi ride. No Uber in Alicante. Very simple. Very close.
