About Market Days in Mallorca
Almost every town in Mallorca has a weekly market, each held on a different day of the week. This means there’s more than enough opportunity to visit a market on the island during your stay on the island.

Markets thrive in Mallorca and are a great way to experience some true local culture. The larger markets all follow a similar pattern with fresh produce around the main square and, fanning out from there, specialist local produce. Be sure to check out the Spanish cheese, cured meats, olive oil and salt offerings. Handmade jewellery, arts and crafts, inexpensive clothing and household goods can also usually be found. And worry not about the language barriers, the locals love it if they see that you are making an effort to blend in, no matter the quality of your Spanglish.
There are a whole host of markets held in Palma, though these are mostly food related and should appeal to foodies. The more characterful markets, offering a traditional experience, are held outside of the capital to the rural areas; there you will find local produce and crafts sold by authentic Mallorcans.
During the summer, many of the coastal resorts have night markets tailored towards tourists seeking Mallorca-inspired arts and crafts, jewellery, clothing and other trinkets.
