3 Best Places to Shop in Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Queso Project

Fodor's choice

Some of Lanzarote's top artisan cheeses (and a wide selection of mainland European ones) are sold at this charming city-center shop.

Ahumadería de Uga

The hamlet of Uga is the improbable home of what's arguably Spain's finest smoked salmon producer. The Guerrero family won't relinquish its secret recipe, but what we know is that the salmon is imported from Scotland and Norway, cured with salt culled from nearby Janubio beach, and smoked over La Geria grapevines. The smoked fish is so delectable that the tiny shop sells more than 200 pounds of it each day.

Aloe Plus Lanzarote

A wide range of lotions, balms, and serums made from locally grown aloe vera are sold at this shop, which also has a small "museum" detailing the history and uses of the plant. There are other branches in Yaiza, Arrieta, Punta Mujeres, La Graciosa, and beyond.
