Location:  Tetir   Puerto del Rosario

The Artisan Market, in Tetir is held on the second Sunday of each month in the months of March, June, September and December.

Born with the idea of combining traditional crafts such as leather, weaving, pottery, and lace, The setting is as unique as the people of Tetir whose inhabitants create handicrafts of the island, adorned with live popular music that accompanies the various exhibitions of indigenous sport and traditional games, camel rides and many other demonstrations of Fuerteventura's culture.
This picturesque town is located 9.2 km west of the island's capital of Puerto del Rosario, therefore you will certainly relish the stunning scenery on the journey to Tetir. Those who want to know local traditions and cultural roots can participate in the food, music, games, exhibits and in the rich and varied crafts.

Tetir Artisan Market is located in Tetir, Fuerteventura.

Located at the centre of the municipal of Puerto del Rosario, Tetir sits at the foot of the Temerejeque mountain. The people of Tetir keep up with some of the island's oldest traditions.

It is thought that witches once congregated here, and it is known to be home to the 'Ranchos de los Animas,' musicians that came about due to the Franciscans during the latter part of the 15th century. Their sole purpose was to free the souls of the dead.

Today on 1st November and 2nd March the modern day 'Ranchos de los Animas' visit the village houses and sing to raise money so as to perform masses for the souls of the dead.

I visited Tetir Market on Sunday for the first time, I was very impressed with the range of local products and the lack of people hassling you to buy dodgey handbags and sunglasses.

There was live music and children's activities such as face painting, we arrived around 10am but it didn't really start getting busy till around midday.

Local items included the following;
  • A selection of Goat cheeses with free tasting.
  • Goat milk.
  • Golfio
  • Aloe vera Juices and Jams with free tasting.
  • A selection of salted fish including octopus.
  • A selection of fresh locally grown fruit and vegetables.
  • Hand made leather items.
  • Hand made Jewellery
  • A selection of Fuerteventura salt with free tasting.
  • A selection of local breads, cakes, and pastries.
