Traditional and nice Sunday market
Sep 2019 • Friends
We went to the Sunday market to buy things for a picnic lunch. It is a busy and traditional market with a lot of stalls offering all sorts of local food - and samples of course. We went bananas in one of the cheese stalls. NICE. Some of our friends provided meats, bread, honey and olives... try it!

Big market, very crowded, not much fruit & veg
Aug 2019
We were warned that it would be crowded, and it was. But there again it was August and it's a big tourist draw. But the more disappointing aspect of it was that the local produce stalls (cheese, sausages, etc.) were vastly outnumbered by stalls selling tat: very cheap clothes, African leather, T shirts, etc. There was literally only one stall selling fruit and veg! We had to go to one of the very few supermarkets open on a Sunday in Cangas to get food for dinner. But the cheese selection was terrific, and buying straight from the producers (who all let you taste what you are buying) was great.

Terrific Truckles
Oct 2016 • Couples
Sunday morning by the church, forego all the touristy shops on the high street and come here for foody souvenirs, the quality, choice and price are much better. On the periphery of the market are clothes stalls, and one guy selling parrilla grills then inside are produce and cheese stalls. Main attractions are the seasonal nuts; hazelnuts and walnuts, jars of really good quality anchovies, white Asturian dried beans and the cheeses. The most well known Asturian cheese Cabrales is here, but it’s also worth trying some of the less well know cheeses like El Perel (another blue cheese that I actually prefer to Cabrales), Gamoneu, La Chivita, Lazana and Vidiago ahumado which are all fantastic and you won’t find outside Asturias. There of lots of different producers of the same cheese, so it’s worth trying samples first to see the difference. There is even variation between the truckles themselves. Also to further complicate matters you can have the same cheese ie. Beyos that is made from different milk; goat (cabra), sheep (oveja) or cow (vaca). Did I mention there’s also homemade cakes, pastries, bread, butter and homemade tinctures and toiletries as well, get here early as by midday the place is heaving and some things will have sold out.

Best market around here for local produce
Sep 2016
Busy market in a traditional setting. Usual tacky stall on the approach to market but within the traditional building many local producers of cheese, sausages, fruit and vegetable, plus some beautiful tarts.

5 Star Street Market
Jul 2014 • Couples
The Cangas de Onis weekly market occurs every Sunday from roughly 09:30 to 13:30 and sprawls over the streets and plaza east and south of the Iglesia Parroquial de Santa Maria (Church of Santa Maria). This gathering features locally produced foods: artisan cheeses and to sausages, honey, the wonderful Asturias’ dried white beans, fresh produce, baked goods, seemingly everything yummy. The purveyors may be small producers or the growers, home bakers, producers themselves. Stalls vary from commercial operations to card tables with baked treats or mini cheese wheels from individual kitchens. There is also clothing, DVDs, hardware and flea market crap. The appeal is food. The energy was strongest in the food section with enthusiastic locals doing their shopping. We also visited the Wednesday market in Ribadesella. OK but much less food products; much more clothing.
