There are numerous open air markets offering handmade crafts & souvenirs and local produce. All the markets are bustling with a mix of tourists and locals looking for great bargains. So if you’re looking for that special something as a gift, a nice souvenir or to sample local produce there’s lots of markets to choose from.

Teguise Market

Sundays 10am – 2pm
At any other time, Teguise is a sleepy town but it comes alive every Sunday as host to the Island’s biggest and busiest street market. There are literally hundreds of stalls selling artisan goods, tourist souvenirs, fake designer goods and local wines.

Arrecife Market

Saturdays 9am-2pm
Launched in 2010, this market offers artisan goods and souvenirs, food items and local agricultural produce. Its location at the Recinto del Parque Temático de Arrecife (beside the Cabildo) with the main bus stop on the south side of Arrecife makes it very accessible to travelers from all over the Island.

Playa Blanca Marina Rubicon Market

Wednesday & Saturdays 9am-2pm
Offering a slightly more upmarket range of jewellery, clothes and artisan goods than some of the other markets. The Marina Rubicon market is spread throughout the marina amongst the little boutique shops and restaurants, it’s a great place to spend a couple of hours seeking out a bargain and then find somewhere nice to have lunch.

Costa Teguise Market

Fridays 5pm-10pm
Held in the Pueblo Marinero (main square), this market offers the usual tourist souvenirs and fakes. It is well worth a visit just to soak up the atmosphere and mix with the locals in the bars and restaurants that line the square.

Haría Market

Saturdays 10am-2pm
This market is a bit different than the rest, with purely artisan goods from clothing to paintings & pottery and local produce such as fruit &vegetables, cheeses, wines, breads & pastries. It’s a bustling little market, great for browsing good quality goods and stopping for coffee or drinks and perhaps a spot of lunch.

Mancha Blanca Farmers Market

Sundays 9am-2pm
An agricultural market that is not too touristy and attracts mainly locals shopping for fruit and vegetables. Lanzarote’s local produce is well worth trying

Teguise 18 & 19 December 11:00-21:00
This first Chrismtas Craft fair promises visitors the opportunity to purchase a wide variety of handicrafts, traditional pastries, floral arrangements and many of the figurines of the nativity.
