The market of Morro Jable is held every Wednesday from 9am until 2pm, and at the market we can find in one place the essence of this picturesque town: although tourists and visitors increasingly take up more space, the locals still visit the market every week to buy local quality products with a unique taste.
That special flavour, that essence is found while exploring its numerous alleys full of stands, under the shadow of their tents. Immerse yourself among the colourful clothes, flowers, fragrances, handicrafts, popular sayings and songs, and be surprised by a loud shout trying to attract customers and obtaining many smiles.
Summer clothes, typical Canarian fabrics, shoes and sandals, handbags, jewellery, paintings, personalised clothing and toys. The market is full of surprises that leave none indifferent. The best time to go is early in the morning, at about 9.30, when some stands are still placing their goods and few have woken up early to visit the market.
The products of the Canarian garden have their own space in the municipal market of Morro Jable, located behind the Avenue of El Saladar, in the Mascona street, close to the port that supplies a good amount of fresh fish. The seafood stalls are the most appealing as Morro Jable was and continues to be one of the most traditional fishing villages of Fuerteventura. As a matter of fact, before or after visiting the market, it is a very recommendable experience to visit the fishermen’s pier.
If you stay at one of the hotels in Playa de Jandia that are closer to the town, you will be able to walk to the market without any problems. The hotels in Playa de Esquinzo and the family resorts in Jandia are a good option for an accommodation in the southeast area of Fuerteventura as, although they have the town close by, they do not give up on the tranquility of the most beautiful beaches in the area.
