About
Every week, vendors peddle local crafts and handmade goods in the charming town of Teguise, the former capital of the Canary Island. Here you'll find local artisans and a wide range of items from pottery, baskets and jewelry to local wines and cheeses. Bargaining is expected, so be sure to haggle. There's a celebratory atmosphere at the market with traditional Canarian cuisine, live music and entertainment, but be wary of pickpockets. Visit early and beat the crowds, or stick around until closing to score last-minute steals. Consider a market tour by a local guide which includes round-trip transportation. – Tripadvisor

    Shoppers paradise
    If it's busy off season it must be mental come high summer. I enjoyed the shops in the village the most. Beautiful picturesque whitewashed traditional village. Can see , besides Sundays, it hasn't been ruined by tourism or capitalism. Very traditional. The market was HUGE , an endless stream of white canopy's. Plenty of choices yet all very much same, same. The buskers on the streets added to the ambience. I love my hippie styles and had so many choices. There was some excellent African art work, especially wooden sculptures. Damn it flying with Ryanair I couldn't indulge. Overall a must do in Lanzarote.

    Worth a visit
    Worth going but many stalls selling same goods and more expensive than shops on resort. Some good local craft type stalls but took some finding. Get local bus rather than paying premium prices for an organised trip.

    Go to the quirky artesian shops just surrounding the market for good quality nicer items
    Great market with hundreds of different stalls on a Sunday morning. Most stalls sell the usual things like belts, hats, clothes and bags. Not sure if many stalls are selling genuine branded items so just be careful. We spent a lovely 3 hours there and preferred the tiny cobbled streets a short stroll from the market with its quirky artesian shops. The shops were quite often cheaper than the market and so many hidden gems. It's a beautiful town to stroll around with lots of cafes to sit and watch the world go by. We sat outside Loris with live music and watched the world go by. Would definitely recommend a visit but do not just look at the market stalls as the nearby shops are much nicer. You ideally need 2-3 hours here.

    Large market but repetitive stalls
    We visited Teguise Sunday Market while visiting Lanzorote. We found free parking within a ten minute walk. The market is very big with many different items for sale on both stalls and shops. Although there was a lot of choice with items, we found that stalls were mostly repetitive selling much if the same with no difference in prices. Fake items are in abundance here too. We found a place to eat and ordered a snack of fried cheese and freshly squeezed orange juice which we enjoyed. Overall the market is good for tourists.

    Quaint old town with a huge market!
    We loved this trip to Lanzorote’s largest market in the old town (and previous capital), Teguise! The surrounding areas are beautiful. We visited the old church and the Aloe Vera museum. The market itself is huge! You won’t go short of handbags, belts or ‘designer’ clothing or fragrances! There’s a cute little coffee and pastry shop we visited. It gets quite busy if you get there after 10am. There are also plenty of food vans with a variety of foods to choose from. There were also entertainers, a play park fir children and many hair braiding ladies.

    Teguise Market go early
    Don’t do the tour find the local number 11 bus from Teguise cheaper and easy goes every half hour Go early as it gets very hot. Barter sometimes prices very high (double you’d pay in local shops) some stores very reasonably priced. Hundreds of stalls set over large areas. Toilets food and drink available very busy

    Huge, nice market!
    Booked an excursion here through Travelon.World. Easy to book and coach arrived promptly. Nice nuggets of information by the guide on the way up there too. The market is big and lots of stalls so spend an hour walking around then go to where you feel you can get the best deal. We got there at 9:40am and by 11am it was very busy. There is food available and toilets (there was a big queue for the ladies but no more than a few mins). Basically there is anything you want and I recommend a visit into the church too. We have two young boys (11/5yrs) and they loved the trainers and football stuff. There is an official Lanzarote FC stall which was nice. I would expect it to be boiling walking around but we had cloud cover (and a splash of rain). The kids got restless after an hour or so but walking around the town helped that (and lots of places to eat/drink both in the market and in the town). I would recommend a visit…we did 3hrs and it was more than enough. It’s a lovely market (not too crowded) and felt safe (ie no pickpockets) all the time we were there.

    A good experience
    We went early and caught a taxi which cost us 25e each way. The stalls are quiet repetitive but also varied. We got a few things there but really went for the experience. We took a walk around the streets whilst there. We would visit again.

    Fabulous way to while away a morning
    There are some great stalls, but just be careful as some items are much cheaper down in the main towns. Have an idea of prices before you go. Great food and drink stalls, including English bacon butties!!! The buses home are very, very busy and not a lot of etiquette with queuing!

Teguise Sunday market has over a hundred vendors. Our friends said that there is a local Lanzarote vendors’ section and an all imported mostly made in China sections.

There’s plenty of food. There was a performer and hair braiding stands.
By the church, there are clothing, knick knacks, aloe, bath shops.

Think we went on the hottest day. Not much shade around. Most stalls sell similar stuff and it’s cheaper in the local gift shops. Although we haggled buying some caps and got them from €8 to €6. So don’t be afraid to haggle.

Nice atmosphere but very busy. If you go on the local bus service be prepared to que for the return journey!

Great if you want a fake bag, trainers, wallet, baseball cap or football top.
Personally better going to the beach or actually seeing the island.

I was expecting a lot of local hand craft on a flea market. Unfortunately I mostly found a lot of fakes made in China, repeated all over again. There have been only few stands with local products, but extremely price (prices 3 times higher than on the Costa Teguise promenade). Moreover extremely crowded place.
Although the town itself is lovely.

Went in a hire car -plenty of parking, all the same price (E2). Don't park in the first car park as it is a long walk in. Drive to the roundabout in the centre then park in the park park closest to it. When we arrived (10.45am) we couldn't use the nearest car park but, by the time we left there were plenty of spaces as people had begun leaving and the person collecting the money had left. Suggestion - arrive around midday. Plenty of the usual rubbish but some unusual items. Look at the tourist shops for anything that you might be interested in the previous day, then you know what to offer. There are free toilets in one spot in the market with an English run refreshment wagon next to them (home-made cakes) and when we visited, a few other English run stalls in the vicinity.

Teguise is a nice little town and the market compliments it excellently. I probably would visit the town otherwise, I doubt many others would either so the markets gives people a reason to go. Large market spread throughout the town and around the streets is so much better than just putting it in a big field or car park. Usual Adidas / Nike hats, YSL/ Prada bags and the crap found at all markets but also some nice local crafts and handicrafts. Worth a visit as the town has lots of bars and eateries apart from hotdog stands etc which markets normally attract. Lots of car parking and well organised

Wow...never been to such a large market. It literally covers most of the town. Yes, a lot of the stalls sell the same thing but it is a wonderful atmosphere. Lots to look at and options for food. We went by car - there are a number of well organised car parks on the road into Teguise (2 euro in cash to park). It is on every Sunday. Well worth a visit.
