We visited the Mercado on our second day. It is huge with an enormous selection of fish, meat, charcuterie, vegetables and baked goods. Made me almost wish I lived there as there was so much choice and all at very reasonable prices.

At mercado central 106 is four generations of knowledge, skill, passion and gourmet experience. An incredible place to go and be delighted by flavor. You can find them on instagram @CharcuterieAntonio

There are many other places to enjoy a fabulous mercado indeed

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. Allow about an hour to wander around and sample all of the goodies.

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 however is a great sight so even f it's closed then the architectural splendour is worth seeing. I would have loved to have got inside, but alas we can't have everything.
