Every three months, the sleepy village of Tetir fills up with people and energy in order to host the popular Tetir Craft Market, an event that brings together residents and tourists alike.
The market takes place in the Public Square of Tetir, but it is impossible to miss it if you come here on the day. Craftsmen from all over the island participate in this event, where there is a festive atmosphere, with typical Canarian music and cultural activities.
Sometimes there are even activities for kids such as inflatable castles, rides on camels & ponies, or bicycle tours.
Some of the products that you can find at Tetir Craft Market are aloe vera products, pottery, handmade jewelry, and gastronomic products representative of Fuerteventura, such as gofio, Canarian mojo sauces, or cheese made from goat milk.
Mercado de Tetir usually takes place on a Sunday, most of the time being the second Sunday of the month on a quarterly basis.
