Mercado del Puerto Tours and Activities

Free admission

Often considered to be the finest example of iron architecture in Gran Canada, the Mercado del Puerto is one of the main food markets in the city of Las Palmas. Its modernist, strikingly stern appearance is due to its contrasting structure, which clashes against the typically earth-colored Canarian properties. This bold architectural choice has been attributed to the socioeconomic evolution of Las Palmas over the past two centuries, as modernism and mercantilism were slowly implanted in the notoriously slow-paced Canarian lifestyle. Built in 1891, the market features exceptional wrought iron works as well as Art Nouveau touches with the thoughtful inclusion of glass among other ornamental elements. Nestled between the harbor and the beach, Mercado del Puerto is cosmopolitan and relaxed compared to other markets in the city and quite hospitable because of its rather small size, with just 40 stalls. Far from being just a produce market, the building houses several tapas bars, flower shops, hairdressers, wine shops, coffee shops and many others. It is most busy in late afternoons, especially on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
