Don't miss the craziest and most unique market in the Canary Islands this weekend

If you're a fan of jewellery, sunglasses, handbags, or football tops, there's a unique market that you simply cannot miss this weekend. Over the past few years, the popularity of markets and flea markets in the Canary Islands has increased, and for good reason.

As wages remain stagnant and the prices of food and other goods continue to rise, the trend is to hop from one market to another, searching for the freshest fish, the best meats, fruits, vegetables, and top brands at unbeatable prices. For a different kind of day out, be sure to visit this spectacular and highly popular municipal market in the Canary Islands.

What makes this market so wild and unique?

If you’re not into the hustle and bustle of people hunting for the best deals, this might not be the market for you. Known for its chaotic yet unique atmosphere, it offers an eclectic array of products.

It's the largest market in the Canary Islands, featuring everything from football shirts and branded caps to designer sunglasses. You'll find stalls with everything priced at one euro, polos for ten euros, steel jewellery, three sports shirts for ten euros, imitation handbags, phone cases, watches, towels, crystal art, incense, bikinis, and much more.

Where Is the Market?

This vibrant market is located at Playa de Mogán, in the south of Gran Canaria. It stretches from Avenida Los Marreros, up the parking lot, through Plaza Pedro Betancort, and onto the Castillete promenade.

The market is open every Friday from 9:00am to 3:30pm, giving you plenty of time to explore all the stalls. Plus, you can refuel at the food and ice cream stands scattered throughout.

More About Playa de Mogán:

Aside from the market, Playa de Mogán is an ideal spot for spending the day with family or friends. Known for its calm waters, it is one of the safest beaches on the island.

The promenade is lined with additional shops and terraces where you can relax and enjoy a drink in the sun. The 200-metre-long beach is accessible for people with reduced mobility and features outdoor showers, umbrellas, sunbeds, nearby parking, and lifeguards.

Visiting the market and capping the day with a dip in Playa de Mogán makes for the perfect weekend plan.
