Mercado Central de Abastos

Mercado Central de Abastos shows the authentic face of a Spanish market, a place where lively vendors create a buzzing atmosphere. Local produce, along with the freshest seafood, are displayed in a covered market that dates back to 1837.


For your shopping trip in Jerez, you should first head to Calle Larga, where you’ll find high-street fashion brands. Then, explore the streets of Calle Larga, especially Calle Algarve, where narrow lanes are lined with tiny shops selling knick-knacks and souvenirs. A stone's throw away you'll find the covered market brimming with local produce and fresh seafood. Jerez is known mainly for three things — horses, flamenco, and sherry — and each of them cannot be left unexplored. Sample sherries and wines at a traditional bodega, shop some local equestrian souvenirs or pop into a colourful shop of flamenco dresses.
