There was not enough time at the Santo da Serra market and too much time at the Santa Cruz market. There were no products or handicrafts from the basket weavers promised in the description of the activity. The guide was very good and gave great information about the individual places visited.

Nice excursion! We were picked up near the hotel by a friendly guide. Besides visiting the market, we also visited a number of other places that the guide knew a lot about. The market itself was nice to look at, but nothing special. The garden next to it, on the other hand, was very beautiful. Recommended!

A tour to experience a market mainly frequented by locals, so unlike the Mercado Dos Lavadores in Funchal where the only Madeirans you will see are the sellers, this is the real thing and prices are competitive and low. There's authentic local specialities too, Poncha, cider, stone baked bread and so much more ...... The gardens are a must visit too. So peaceful, with lovely birdsong. I could easily have spent an hour there. Santa Cruz is a lovely place too. It would have been ideal to spend an hour or more there enjoying the promenade, enjoying a snack in one of the tavernas. For me the wickerwork factory was a commercialised showcase for tourists, way too “staged” and inauthentic. I would rather have spent my time at the other venues. Maybe because over the years I've visited villages involved in creating one craft, mainly sat at their doors, which is what wickerwork used to be here ...... The tour delivered a unique experience without the need for a hirecar.
