Los Cristianos Market - every Tuesday and Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm

Location: Avenida Juan Carlos I, 38650

It usually gets very crowded so be careful with your personal belongings.

Unfortunately there are a lot of pickpockets around and you shouldn't keep your purse where it can easily be grabbed.

Also, you should know that many stalls sell fake goods: from bags, sunglasses, watches and up to clothing items. In case you want to buy this type of things you should definitely haggle before you agree to pay. Most of the sellers have inflated prices and when buying at this market you should always negotiate first.

Compared to other similar markets in the Canaries, like Teguise market in Lanzarote, we did not like Los Cristianos market very much. It's very crowded and the stalls are cramped, so it's very difficult to walk around in peace while looking at what's on display.

If you're staying in the area and you are curious to see what the market it's about, then I recommend you go. But if you're not staying in Los Cristianos or anywhere nearby, I don't really think this market is worth the trip. You would be better of exploring Los Cristianos and its surroundings.

But if shopping is what you're looking for, then you should read more about shopping in Tenerife.
