Arts and crafts market in the north of El Hierro
Although La Frontera market has been going since 2004 it was greatly improved in 2011 with the opening of attractive permanent stalls. Located in the Benito Padrón square in the stunning valley of El Golfo, this market has excelled thanks to the wide range of products it offers, which makes it one of the most diverse markets in the islands, despite taking place on the smallest of them all. It's a real treat, where top-quality handicrafts and food products can be bought.
Traditional produce and cultural events in El Golfo
Puppet shows, mime artists, a permanent cartoonist, musical performances and other cultural attractions are the perfect complement to the crafts, basket weaving, textiles and other products displayed on the market’s 25 stalls. On top of that you’ll find plants and flowers, cakes, pastries and workshops on gardening and horticultural produce, all of which make a visit here on Sundays more than worth it. Picking up one of the many kitchen utensils made from juniper wood - the famous twisted tree (“sabina” in Spanish), which has become an island symbol in itself, is another reason to put a visit to this market in the diary.
