Gran Canaria Markets: Workhorse San Mateo

Local produce at San Mateo market Local produce at San Mateo market

San Mateo market, rather like the town, is a workhorse of a place that put efficiency ahead of aesthetics. Set in a whopping great warehouse it offers a huge range of local produce, has a good wine stall, and is the cheapest of the big north Gran Canaria markets. 

Despite it's size San Mateo market gets busy and parking in the town on weekend mornings after about 10.00 am is a nightmare. It's best to get there early for a spot in the car park right by the warehouse. Then you can stick your shopping in the car and head over the main road for lunch in San Mateo's old centre with perhaps a quick salsa dance on the way: There's a band every Sunday by the market.
