An extra market in Gran Canaria has been given the go ahead by both the mayor and market councillor of Mogan.

Markets are great for tourists and also for the local Canarian communities who are feeling the credit crisis pinch this year.

This market, which is on Mondays, is an artisan market and you can buy Canarian art and food for your Canarian cooking. There are seventy market stalls there and plans for another eighty when it gets busier.

Whereabouts is it?

The Mogan Monday market is on top of the big car park where some of the Friday market stalls are.

Other Markets in Gran Canaria

There is also a farmers’ market in San Fernando on Wednesday and Saturday and a market in Arguineguín on Tuesdays. The main Mogan market is on a Friday.

You can get to the Aruigeguín and Mogan market by ferry (10€ return) from Puerto Rico harbour or by bus or taxi. The markets start early and usually finish about 2pm.

Even though markets are good for tourism I have one small gripe about it… how come Mogan gets two markets and Puerto Rico doesn’t even get one!
