There is a great selection of markets in Lanzarote both for new and second hand items, including Car Boot Sale style markets. In Lanzarote, for some reason, these happen to be charity markets as well, particularly dedicated to raise funds for the welfare of animals.
These are the details of the three regular Car Boot Sales in the island:
The Kennel Klub Big Sale
In aid of The Kennel Klub, an animal charity that focuses mainly on rescuing and re-homing injured or abandoned dogs.
Where: At the Kennel Klub premises, on the main Road from Arrecife to the Airport, near the petrol station at El Cable – see map attached on their poster for more specific directions on how to get there.
When: Monthly, on the first Saturday of from 11h to 13:h.
What: Bric-a-brack, toys, clothes, books and much more starting at €1.
Donations: You can contact the Kennel Klub via their web (www.thekennelklub.org) or by email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange where and when to give them any items you wish to donate for their market.
P.A.L.S. Car Boot Sale
Also known as the Lanzarote a Caballo Car Boot Sale due to the location where it’s held, this one is in aid of P.A.L.S., the oldest animal charity in Lanzarote. The funds they raise are used to spay and neuter stray cats and dogs in Lanzarote. They also occasionally hold additional and special charity days, like the McMillan Coffee Mornings or Christmas Market. I would advise you to keep an eye on our “What’s on” section to find our more details about these.
Where: Lanzarote a Caballo is just off the roundabout for Playa Quemada on the main road that goes from Arrecife to Playa Blanca.
When: Weekly, every Sunday from 9h to 14h.

SARA’s Car Boot Sale
In aid of the largest animal shelter in the island, it’s also the largest car boot sale market.

Donations: While all items donated are much appreciated, it is not possible for the volunteers to accept jumble on market days. So you are kindly requested to bring any donations to SARA’s animal shelter on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10.00h and 12.30h at the jumble store which is at the bottom on the right as you approach the shelter. If jumple items are left outside the receiving hours they might end up being unattended for several days, get damaged by wind, rain and sometimes even stolen, believe it or not.
Note: Donations for the shelter itself like blankets, cleaning products or animal food can be taken in at the shelter’s main gate between 10.30h and 12.45h from Monday to Saturday.
