Gran Canaria is a perfect place to discover the spanish culture. In addition to beaches, villages and monuments also shopping is an important aspect of the tourism. In Lastminute Transfer we offer a couple of excursions to visit the markets of Gran Canaria.
San Mateo and Teror market
We will start the tour in Teror, coming trough Tamaraceite. We will discover the famous wooden balconies and the basílica of Nuestra Señora de la Virgen del Pino. She is the partoness of Gran Canaria and this temple has been declared as site of cultural interest.
Then we will go to San Mateo, where it takes place one of the most popular market of the island: Mercadillo de San Mateo. Every weekend it attracts a lot of visitors, especially on Sundays.
The big pro of this market is that most of the stands are indoor, so the visitors can enjoy even if it’s too hot or too cold, if it’s windy or rainy etc.
The main attraction of San Mateo market is its wide variety of local fruits or vegetables at its best maturation status.
In addition to the popular canarian cheese, honey, dried fuits, herbs, jams, flowers and other local products, San Mateo Market offers also not so common food such as the indian tuno.
The Indian tuno is considered as superfood. It’s very rich in potassium, more that dates or bananas and rich in vitamins of K and E group and a lot of minerals.
If you want to buy something, you need to bring cash with you beacuse most of the stands don’t accept credit card as form of payment.
