Tenerife shopping Buenavista del Norte has been put firmly onto the Spain map by Aderno chocolates and pastries. To say the least...I have seen their latest creation of chocolate art 2012/2013 at their shop in Puerto de la Cruz. Hear more about the renown chef behind it all, by scrolling down!
A friend once told me that Buenavista lacked big shops with variety very much. . She lived there. She said that I wouldn't find Lidl, Hiperdino, Trebol, Alteza and not even Mercadona, there. 'Big malls like Corte Ingles, Alcampo and Carrefour seem to be light years away', she added. Yet, there are a few minor supermarkets for Tenerife shopping Buenavista, such as Gama and Como Como and one with a long Spanish name.
The Buenavista supermarkets make up less than a hand full of outlets. Call them compromise convenience stores. Otherwise, fish, meat, poultry, fruit and vegetables come straight from the neighborhood of Co-ops. They are unlikely to be expensive in this agricultural Mecca. Such produce is sold in many little shops, as is custom in Spain. Frozen food is also easily available and, at economic prices.
In the meantime, nothing is really far from Buenavista. Tenerife is so small.
Caleta de Interian has the next 'Alteza Supermercado' supermarket by the Titsa bus stop. That's virtually up the road from Buenavista. Next comes Garachico which has a Mercadona Mega-shop. Reach all within less than half an hour by car. Hence, Tenerife shopping Buenavista del Norte is no real problem, any more.

Buy electronic gadgets of the IT genre near the main town square together with fancy clothing! I didn't see sports goods for this part of Tenerife listed for the island. It doesn't matter. Does it?
However, this quiet, peaceful town where the world is pretty unspoiled has one of best productions for your sweet tooth. It's called 'Pasteleria Aderno' where El Aderno chocolates excels.
