Puerto Rico farmers market happens every two weeks on a Sunday from 08:30 – 14:30h. Located in Puerto Rico park you can enjoy browsing under the lovely tree lined park with live music and the opportunity to purchase fresh produce from the island. This is a small market and nice for a stroll to pass the time on a Sunday morning, there is information about nearby larger markets at the end of this post.
Find quality and well priced goods and fruits such as mango, avocado, bananas, vegetables, honey, wine, cheese, marmalades and plants. There are also handcraft stalls, perfect if you are looking for a unique souvenir.
We headed directly to the Canary Islands natural salt stall which has 3 pots of spices and salt mixes for 10€. The salt is locally sourced and there is every flavour you can think of, even one with a warning as it's so spicy!
Enjoy some delicious strawberries from the fields of Valsequillo or tempt your taste buds with a freshly made crepe. Olive fans can enjoy locally produced extra virgin olive oil, perfect for a fresh salad.
Tip: Try the guarapo juice, (the juice from the local sugar cane) it's chopped and juiced fresh to order.

Time: 08:30 – 14:30h
