Farmer’s Market Playa San Juan – Fresh, Fun and Phenomenal

We continue our farmer’s markets series at the picturesque town of Playa San Juan. This sweet village has a wonderful promenade offering striking views of the coastline and an optimal oberservation point for viewing the sunset. In the town square on Wednesday mornings we can find the local farmer’s market.

Locally Sourced Produce

Located in the main square of Playa San Juan (Paseo del Bufadero) you can expect to find the freshest produce available, experience the hustle and bustle of early morning shopping, fresh flowers as well as some other local products. We most enjoyed tasting local honey, wines, cosmetics (aloe and damask rose abound) as well as some silk scarves and handmade tote bags. Perfect as a gift or for the beach!

Bonus: It takes place right out in front of the wonderful Panier Coffee & Brunch, so you can treat yourself to a healthy breakfast and delicious specialty coffee after browisng!

Canary Green’s tips to enjoying sustainable tourism in Tenerife

Visiting Tenerife on holiday doesn’t give you free rein to leave your values and principles at home. We encourage travellers to seek out sustainable options and keep up with environmental practices while travelling. Our top tips for a relaxed and wholesome stay include: 

  • Consider green transport options. Are you able to take a ferry to the island instead of flying? While you are here is a car necessary? Investigate public transport links or choose green options such as electric cars, green-hydrogen cars or e-bikes.
  • Choose destinations that value sustainability and choose green alternatives such as solar power, recycling and energy-efficient architecture. This extends to places that value workers’ rights and the impact on the local community.
  • Bring your own water bottle with you and refill it instead of buying single-use plastic bottles.
  • Make use of the recycling when out and about and don’t just throw your rubbish in the nearest bin.
  • Take advantage of local knowledge and immerse yourself in the culture through campaigns such as #Ilovecanarias and #meatfreemondaycanarias
  • Most of all, have fun and enjoy your time in the Canary Islands.
