Every Sunday there is a flea market held in the parking lot of one of the local supermarkets.
So far I have seen only one stall that sells what could be called 'flea worthy' since it's the only one that sells second hand goods.
The rest sell inexpensive tourist oriented souvenirs and clothing, handcrafted and new costume jewellery, and inexpensive handbags.
However it is interesting to drop by there on my way to pick up a loaf of bread at the bakery to see if anything new has been added.

Some of the silver and mother of pearl shell jewelery is quite attractive.
I've read about Argan Oil from Morocco. It's one of the world's rarest oils and its production is labour intensive, extracted by hand by Berber women. I wondered though how authentic this bottle of oil could be seeing as it was being sold in a flea market. Hmmmm.
There's never a shortage of T-shirts to buy in Tenerife!
Nor is there a shortage of handbags made in all materials.
Here below a local Canary woman demonstrates the typical open-stitch embroidery of the island.

Notice her beautiful long hair.
As I leave I stop to take a photo of one of the beautiful little Flamboyant trees (Delonix Regia) with their wide, horizontal spreading branches.
Well time to get that bread and return home to start on our Sunday dinner. Hasta la Vista!
