Los Cristianos Sunday Market Closes and Reopens

Avenida Londres Los Cristianos Sunday MarketThe popular Los Cristianos Market in Tenerife closed on Sunday 1st June 2014 without much warning, apparently for security reasons. There has since been much local protest regarding the closure, many local businesses rely on the bus loads of bargain hunting tourists, which the market brings to the area.

We were pleased to note that today, Sunday 15th June, the market has reopened in a nearby new location. That was simply achieved by closing Avenida Londres which is a dual carriageway, in one direction and erecting hundreds of temporary tented stalls for the day, see all the photos below. No one knows yet if this is to be a permanent home for the Sunday Market.

The previous market was in the confined area and during the hot summer months visitors often complained about the high temperatures due to the high density of people and lack of natural ventilation due to the small space, enclosed on two sides.

The new location has a lot more space and some traders are already saying this is a much improved venue for the market with plenty of space and adequate air movement. The market was busy today but with a lot less jostling than before.
