Caleta de Fuste Flea Market has undergone changes and improvements in recent years, so now the market can also offer some entertainment like musical performances and workshops on Saturday mornings, besides the usual shopping activities.

The Trade Council also wants to encourage the presence of local artisans and local products, along with the other products that are currently being sold at the market.

Caleta de Fuste Street Market: every Tuesday and Saturday

  • From 10:00 to 14:00 h

The Caleta de Fuste Market is a meeting point for tourists, residents and family groups where visitors can find everything, both local products and objects from almost anywhere in the world, so it's a cool place to visit if you want to buy some small gifts and souvenirs. Besides the variety of products, visitors can also enjoy the lively atmosphere and the music, with a choir of different languages.

It's a typical market for the Canary Islands, so if you've ever visited another market on another island in the Canaries, you pretty much know what to expect.

The improvements in the Caleta de Fuste Market will make visitor's experience more pleasant and on Saturday mornings there will also be some entertainment, like music and dances. 

According to the City Council, all the vendors at Caleta de Fuste Market are residents of Fuerteventura (whether or not they were born on the island), so they form part of the municipality's economy, also offering an attraction to tourists and neighbors, an alternative to spend a day of shopping and go on a family walk that then extends through the pedestrian streets of the town, where you can also visit nearby restaurants and shops.
