New Weekly Market For Puerto del Carmen

Lanzarote´s largest resort is now home to a new weekly market, which opened for the first time last Sunday to considerable acclaim whilst welcoming some 2000 visitors.

New Market in Puerto del Carmen

 

Outdoor markets are becoming something of a growing trend on Lanzarote, with virtually all of the main towns and villages boasting some type of open air shopping experience. Ranging from the huge weekly affair held in the former capital of Teguise through to smaller and more atmospheric events such as the Saturday morning market in Haria.  So serious shoppers are advised to book car rental and get out and about exploring.

So Puerto del Carmen, despite being the most popular resort on the island, was very much the odd one out in terms of providing this sort of attraction, until the new La Tiñosa market opened last Sunday.

Organised by the local council (the Ayuntamiento of Tias) and running from 11.00 to 14.00 the market is part of a wider plan to revitalise and improve the overall tourist offering in Puerto del Carmen. And featured a whole raft of events such as live music, a skateboarding competition and prize draws, as well as stalls selling a variety of items including locally produced food and drink.

Such was the success of the event that it will now be held every week, so adding further to Lanzarote´s impressive roster of markets, which also include:

Teguise Market

Held every Sunday and attracting crowds in their tens of thousands this is the mother of all island markets, as the normally quiet cobbled streets of the former island capital are transformed into a massive outdoor bazaar. Stalls here offer everything from mass produced leather goods through to local artisan products and there are also plenty of other entertainments on offer too, such as live folk music and dancing.

Haria Market

Our local favourite Haria market is held every Saturday morning and is a far more intimate and atmospheric experience than Teguise. There are about 30 stalls here selling locally produced craft products as well as organic fruit and veg, bread, chesses and wines.

Playa Blanca – Marina Rubicon

Held every Wednesday and Saturday from 09.00 to 14.00 the market in the Marina Rubicon in Playa Blanca features about 60 stalls selling a wide cross section of products. The Marina is also a great place to visit at anytime for a bit to eat or drink and a spot of people watching.
