Teguise Market  by Fara

Available to buy on…


Teguise market is the place to go on a Sunday morning on Lanzarote. So much so, that it is important to go early if you don’t want a long walk from one of the many car parks, set up in fields around the town.
The market sells almost everything in terms of souvenirs and crafts that you could wish for. Most of the souvenirs that you see elsewhere on the island can be found somewhere on the market, usually slightly cheaper than normal.
Crafts such as woodwork or lace are of good quality – and the prices usually reflect this quality.
The market takes place on the square in front of, and the streets surrounding, the church. Somewhere there is bound to be a band playing music, often on pan-pipes or other South American instruments.
Gone of course are the days before luggage restrictions when it was so easy to bring back interesting purchases.
There are some very interesting boutiques and a marvellous emporium selling gorgeous items from the Far East.
There is a particularly good Bodega just off the square where you can
sit in a beautiful inner courtyard. Order some tapas and while away an hour or two in the cool of the late afternoon.

    We loved this market when we visited several years ago. We were fortunate in that we did it as a bus tour, so didn’t have to walk too far.

    Great photo, thanks for the reminder of this lovely spot.

    Lovely Joyce!!…love all the white washed buildings, looks like a great place for a vacation now…I went many years ago and since then it has changed so much from your images, of course for the better.

  • Thank you dear Kate…………………it did have something of a grotty reputation for a time but that no longer applies………………anyway with a lot of places you have to choose your place very carefully………………hope you are well my friend……………………..love Joyce!!
