Quiet times

We have been twice, the first time when we went there we were a bit nieve and turned up about 12. Don’t go at that time it just gets far too busy and hot.

The second time we went for 9 o’clock on a Sunday morning, it was still very hot but not as bad and it was a lot easier to get around.

Unlike most markets I’ve been to you don’t really seem to be able to haggle with the traders, I tried a few times and was unsuccessful every time.

Always bear in mind there can be a few pickpockets at it, we never noticed any but we were told be other folk we met on holiday to carry your valuables in your front pockets.

What we bought from the Market

My 6 year old daughter loves Manchester Utd and got a strip with Bruno’s name on the back, she doesn’t care if it is a fake or not.

My other child got a ball that if you were to bounce in any direction it would be lost and my wife purchased a new pair of flip flops.

My Thoughts on the Market

Overall, the markets of Costa Adeje are a great way to experience some local culture and shop for unique items.

The prices are generally very reasonable, which is nice if you’re on a budget.

It’s not somewhere I would spend all day at but my wife would beg to differ.

It is also something different for the kids to see away from swimming pools and the beach, and you can treat them to something nice without having to pay a fortune.

I would recommend the market to anyone wanting an authentic and memorable experience. Just remember to wear comfortable shoes as you will be on your feet for a long time and bring some cash, as not all vendors accept cards.
