Teguise Market

Every Sunday morning, the quiet streets of Lanzarote's old capital, Teguise, come alive with the bustling energy of the island's most important market. As the heart of Canarian culture, the Teguise market offers an incredible variety of artisan crafts — from ceramics and basketry to leather goods. Alongside these traditional items, you'll also find an array of natural and local products, such as cheeses, wines, and cactus and aloe-based goods. The market has become a hub for artists to sell their eclectic works, making it a must-visit event for anyone exploring Lanzarote. Not only is it a great place to pick up unique souvenirs, but it's also where the locals go to do their weekly shopping, ensuring fresh and authentic flavours throughout.


Although Lanzarote is no longer a tax-free zone, you'll still find low prices on items like alcohol, perfume, Cuban cigars and cigarettes. For a unique island souvenir, consider purchasing local lacework, baskets or pottery crafted by the indigenous Guanche people. Shops can be found in all the main resorts. In Arrecife, most shops are concentrated on Calle Leon y Castillo. Puerto del Carmen features the Biosfera Shopping Centre (home to clothing shops like Zara), while Playa Honda offers a variety of shops, cosy cafes, and a cinema in the Deiland Centre.
