Vecindario & Arucas
One recommendation is the Mercado Agrícola. This market takes place every Saturday, alternating between Vecindario and Arucas. It’s an excellent opportunity to support local farmers and get some fresh fruits and vegetables. You can find more information about this market on their Facebook page.
Another option to explore is the Mercado Municipal in Telde. It’s open every morning, but it’s always a good idea to double-check the opening times before heading out.
If you’re up for a bit of a drive, the San Mateo Sunday market is worth checking out. Located in the center of Gran Canaria, this market is known for its fresh produce and lively atmosphere. Similarly, the weekend market in Santa Brigida is another great option, although it can be a little overpriced.
