The Best Place to Buy Goodies on Tenerife – Pinolere 2009

I hate to mention the X word when we’re still in the midst of summer, but the Pinolere craft fair in La Orotava will have so many goodies on offer that it’s too good a chance to miss out on some early and unique Xmas shopping (aaargh, there I’ve gone and done it).

It’s a beautiful location, set in and around the thatched huts of the ethnological museum in the green upper reaches of La Orotava and there really will be some cracking stuff to pick. Stalls are packed with artisan crafts ranging from hand painted shoes and jewellery to local produce and eclectic ornaments.

Apart from the stalls there are craft work exhibitions, musical performances and entertainers. It’s a good day out even in you don’t buy anything

Dates: 4th, 5th and 6th September

Times: From 10.00 to 21.00

Price: There’s usually a charge of a few euros to enter the fair.
