Despacio (Slow) Market

A different market will be held at the Museum of Nature and Man on Saturday the 10th June from 10:00 – 21:00 and Sunday 11th June, from 10:00 to 18:00.

Located in the former Civil Hospital of Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados, the building dates back to 1745 and was re-modelled at the end of the 19th century. The Museum of Nature and Man is now the perfect setting for the first Despacio Market in Tenerife.

With the aim of offering locals and visitors the opportunity to find quality products and objects with innovative design that relate to the sustainability, environment and the culture of our islands.

Slow market, slow life – Little by little, we begin to close a cycle of mass consumption and return to handmade, artisan work. The simple and well-made things that bring with them the imprint of those who have touched them. Objects and products with beautiful stories that make us fall in love with them and love them forever.
