La Palma has a new weekly market, this time at the popular tourist resort of Los Cancajos.  It’s open on Saturdays from 9 am to 2 pm, at the south end of the sea front, near the Las Olas hotel.

There’s another fairly new market that takes place on Fridays from 4-9 pm at Finca La Principal, just off the old airport in Breña Alta. And of course, Santa Cruz de la Palma holds a big market on the first Sunday of every month. They’re all good places to pick up local crafts.

  1. We didn’t see the market at Los Cancajos last February. Has it opened since? Looks like we might have to reserve some space in our baggage next year!

  2. It opened in November. Actually, I’ve never managed to see it for myself yet. Every Saturday since it opened, either I’ve been working, except for the two days it was canceled due to bad weather.
