TETIR - quarterly craft market.

A couple of friends and I went along today - we'd never visited this market before and it was only looking at our new Calendar on here the other evening that reminded me it was on. Thanks.

Parking was tight around the actual site of the market, by the church, but if you were happy to walk 100M there was plenty available. For people wanting to make a longer outing there are several cafes and a restaurant in the village as well as a great little bakery that doubles as a café. (3 coffees and 1 toasted sandwich, 4€!)

The market had a selection of stalls, perhaps 15 in total, and a few stalls for charities and tourist info.

There was a large stall with local grown fruit and veg - very good quality - included some lovely lettuces of varieties not normally available here, spring onions, chard and several other 'greens' that I didn't know the name of. Lots of fresh herbs. Fresh oranges were being quartered and handed out.

One or two bakery stalls.

Several stalls with local cheese, mojos, tuno (prickly pear) products etc.

Woven baskets.

Crochet.

Toys.

Photographs of the island.

Jewellery stalls.

There was live music in the plaza but the biggest surprise was a dog show in the neighbouring (green!) field! All the dogs looked the same!! Perro Majorero apparently, looked like crosses between bardinos and black Labradors.

As it was only 10 minutes down the road for us it made a change to go there for coffee and a look around. The market wouldn't be the destination for a day out but makes a nice stop on the way to somewhere else.

I had a little write-up about this Fuerteventura breed - Perro Majorero.

I actually prepared the list of markets. I tried to make it as comprehensive as possible but I can't guarantee the accuracy of the info as I haven't been to many of them and the info was gleaned from other sources.

Thanks for the list TrickyFox. When I added the markets to the Calendar, I also checked from as many sources as I could find. Pretty sure somebody will mention here if some of the info isn't right or changes in the future.

From the Council of Markets of the City council of Pájara, that directs Marisol Placeres, "with this gastronomic encounter pretends to follow with the interest to dynamize the Municipal Market of Morro Jable so that the population knows it, since we have several positions of diverse nature that they are unknown to many and so that, in addition, it becomes a complement for all those who visit us and can enjoy the gastronomy that is offered ".

For the Mayor of Pájara, Rafael Perdomo, "with this type of Events we can encourage citizen participation, where gastronomy becomes the protagonist, forming part of our tourist offer and a benefit for the dynamism of the Market, same time that movement is generated in our municipality. "

There is an excellent flea market In Puerto del Rosario on Sunday mornings, just beside the Guardia building by the church, you are likely to find anything from an original Spanish navy cap to a full size inflatable male doll!

Here's the exact location, just in case:


Plaza de la Paz, Puerto del Rosario


Is the market taking place every Sunday? I always thought it is on just once a month or something like that.

It's been there every Sunday morning we've been down.  Don't think it's coincidence. Thanks for pinpointing the location.
