Stunning Mallorca is home to an exceptional selection of vibrant markets. From handmade jewellery to olive oil to livestock, the island boasts an enormous variety of goods that you can admire and purchase at your heart’s content. With a market for every day (and night) of the week in every town in Mallorca, a visit to at least one should be a priority during your stay. |
Of course, shopping is essential, but take the time to appreciate the charm of each town, as every market has a unique atmosphere – some offer street food and restaurants while others play live music to accompany your perusing. Only two hours by plane from London, this buzzing island and its unique shopping experience are not to be missed. Once you land, book a Mallorca Airport transfer to your accommodation for an easy, stress-free beginning to your holiday.
There is something to satisfy every curiosity nestled in Mallorca’s markets. Here are a handful of the very best the island has to offer.
The most diverse and largest collection of markets can be discovered in Palma, including the Olivar which is famed for being the biggest and best for indoor shopping. It is a fabulous destination to grab your dinner ingredients. You can choose from the vast array of fish, meats, fruits and vegetables Olivar carries.
For the art-loving shopper, Plaça Major is perfect for souvenir hunting. Arts and crafts can be found along the Sa Llotja seafront during the summer. For a grand gourmet experience, head to the San Juan Gastronomic market and sample the street food.
Get Off the Beaten Track in Inca
The market in the town of Inca is the biggest on the island yet is the least touristy spot to shop. Blend in with the locals and experience authentic Spain while you admire (and perhaps buy) the local olives, leather goods, clothes and gifts. The Spanish appreciate an effort to communicate with the locals no matter how limited your language skills are, so don’t forget to pack your phrase book.
Immerse Yourself in the Atmosphere of Pollença
Don’t stop at the markets: take a day trip to this quaint historic town so you can admire the picturesque Mallorcan buildings and enjoy the eclectic atmosphere. It really is a treat for all the senses. Explore the crafts, local produce and knik-knaks while you listen to the live music acts performing in the square.
