Local Markets in Lanzarote

 In Blog

Local Markets provide a unique opportunity to experience and sample Lanzarote life in its most simple form. Each of the markets has a busy and bustling feel to it and have a great atmosphere.

From just a handful of stalls selling local produce to a vast variety winding through the local streets, each market has something different to offer.

Here are a few of our favourites:

 

Monday to Friday:

Arrecife, Recova Market – Fresh local produce and local artisan craft shops from 9am to 2pm

Arrecife, Fish Market – Local fish and sea food caught fresh each day from 9am to 1pm

 

Wednesday & Saturday:

Playa Blanca, Marina Rubicon – 9.30am to 1.30pm – This market offers around 30 local souvenir stands, local wines, cheese, and many other vendors that provide a wide variety of products to choose from. In addition, there are a variety of designer outlet shops offering clothing, handbags, shoes and the usual perfume shops. There are a couple of small boutiques and art galleries/shops dotted about too. Free parking.

 

Friday:

Costa Teguise, Pueblo Marinero – 6pm to 10pm – Small and busy evening market, mainly crafts and souvenirs with great atmosphere. It is a very nice way to spend the night among the market stalls, shops and bars, because while you’re doing a walk you can sit down and stay for dinner.

In the main square, you’ll find a huge number of food stalls selling good old English breakfasts, hamburgers, savory and sweet crepes and even doner kebabs.
