Since the famous American writer, Michael Pollan, said the quote of “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants” or that in Spain, Carlos Ríos revolutionized the Social Media with the Real Food movement, the concern for the composition of food has become a constant among consumers.

It must also have had something to do with the British chef, Jamie Oliver, who for years has developed a pioneering campaign focused on changing the eating habits of children. So much so, that their footprint has been impregnated in schools around the world, which have chosen to offer menus composed of vegetables and other healthy options.

The war against the ultraprocessed and the search for natural and nutritious options has made markets live an authentic resurgence. With a surprising orchard, a gastronomy that conquers palates and farmers who put all their efforts into obtaining the best products, we cannot think of a better place to visit local markets than on the island of Tenerife.

From north to south, our island has excellent farmer’s markets where you can not only buy fruits and vegetables, but also offer other local options such as wines, cheeses, breads and handicraft products worth admiring or buying. Join us and discover all their secrets and charms.

The best markets of Tenerife

Agromercado de Adeje

Wednesdays from 15:00 to 19:00; Saturdays and Sundays from 08:00 to 13:30

Without moving from the south of Tenerife, in the same municipality where the Hotel Suite Villa Maria is located, we find this market specialized in the promotion of the primary sector of the area. Up to 35 stalls offer top quality fresh products at fair and affordable prices for consumers, farmers and stockbreeders. It is worth taking a morning to get to know their fresh products, as well as other interesting local proposals such as avocado oil, jams or artisan sweets.

Farmer’s Market of San Miguel de Abona

Wednesdays from 16:00 to 20:00; Saturdays and Sundays from 08:00 to 14:00

With almost 20 years, this market is one of the pioneers in the south of Tenerife and is characterized not only by a clear commitment to local products, but also by craftsmanship. The reactivation of the primary sector in the area, after its incursion into the municipality, shows the great interest in local and seasonal consumption among consumers. If you choose to go to Las Chafiras to get to know this market, don’t forget to taste the rich wines from the Abona region that you can also find there.

La Laguna is one of the most visited cities, given its status as a World Heritage Site. It is worth getting lost in its streets, admiring its colonial architecture, tasting its traditional sweets and chatting over coffee in any of its terraces. Among the obligatory stops of this visit to the city you’ll find the Municipal Market, which has stalls dedicated to garden products, meats, fish, spices, coffee and pastries, in addition to others dedicated to plants, flowers, clothing and even animals. Autumn is the best season to get to know the charms of this city and, rest assured, their market will impress you.
