Gran Canaria Markets

Gran Canaria is an ideal place for shopping during your holiday, as the island has over 20 weekly markets and a few annual ones.

No matter where you are staying, you will be able to find a local flea market or craft market close by. In spanish these are called Mercado Artisanal or Mercadillos, depending on their size and the products that are being sold.

A great number of weekly markets are scheduled during the weekend, but you will also find on our list some options for midweek shopping.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the capital of the island and the largest city, so it makes sense that the city is a great place for clothes, perfumes, jewellery and also souvenir shopping.
