About Market Days in Mallorca
Almost every town in Mallorca has a weekly market; most start early at around 8.00am and wind up by lunchtime. Some towns in Majorca have bigger markets than others.
The biggest market is on Thursdays at Inca, which is halfway between Palma and Alcudia. The most traditional is the Wednesday agricultural and livestock market at Sineu right in the centre of the island. The market at Santa Maria on a Sunday is also popular as it literally sells everything - think flea market combined with fresh fruit and vegetables!
The smaller towns have markets that focus on local produce, such as fruit and veg, and more often than not these days, you'll find stalls of trinkets and jewellery that seem to have a worldwide appeal. Markets open at 08:00 and run until 13:00.
The larger markets all follow a similar pattern - fresh produce around the main square, specialist food stalls fanning out from there, then cheap clothes, household goods and craft stalls for the tourists. When shopping at the markets in Majorca, make sure that you keep valuables safe, and enjoy a lovely day out. The locals love it if they see that you are making an effort to blend in, no matter the quality of your Spanglish!
Palma has a range of markets from flea markets to organic food markets. Slightly lacking the atmosphere of some of the smaller town's markets, Palma nevertheless offers it's residents a decent selection of market goods. Two of the best food markets are to be found in Palma. The Olivar Market is a huge & colourful indoor shopping experience, with a great range of fruit, veg, meat and a separate, well-stocked fish market. And the San Juan Gastronomic Market opened in 2015 to great acclaim and offers the foodie much more than just fruit and veg stalls... Plaça Major hosts a craft market throughout the year - see below for times. During the summer months, you'll find a summer craft market down in La Llonja, along the seafront.
During the summer, many of the coastal resorts have night markets, selling arts and crafts, jewellery and clothing. Check our Events Calendar to find out when and where they are on.
There is such a huge choice of markets across the island that we have listed a few of our most recommended markets for your below...
Inca Market is Mallorca's largest weekly market and is held on Thursdays. Buy everything from fruit & vegetables, olives & olive oils, leather goods, jewellery, clothes, gifts and souvenirs. Sineu Market is a wonderfully authentic market held every Wednesday morning in the pretty rural town of Sineu in central Mallorca. Along with the usual fruit, vegetable and local produce stalls, there is a livestock market, where farm animals are bought and sold.
The walled town of Alcudia in the north (just a couple of kilometres from the beach resorts of Alcudia) also has a very good market held on Tuesdays and Sundays. It makes for a great day out as you can explore the old walls and other historical monuments of Alcudia whilst you are there. Santa Maria del Camí, just off the motorway to the north of Palma, hosts a large market every Sunday. You'll find plenty of fresh local produce from the area, as well as a small organic produce section.
Also on Sunday, and just a few minutes up the road from Santa Maria is the town of Consell which hosts the island’s largest flea market every Sunday. The goods here range from second-hand clothes, toys and furniture to jewellery, antiques and a vast selection of bric-a-brac. Sundays are clearly a popular day for markets, as Pollença in the north hosts an arts & crafts, local produce and nic-nacks market on Sunday mornings. Pollença is well worth a trip in its own right as it is a very pretty traditional Mallorcan town, so factor in some time to have a look around.
Down in the south-east of Mallorca is Santanyí, whose weekly market is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The centre of this lovely sandstone village fills up with stalls selling local arts & crafts as well as fruit and vegetables. Over in the west is the popular town of Sóller, and their market is held on Saturday mornings. You can really make a day trip for this one, as there is plenty to do and see in Sóller and Port de Sóller - they are linked by a handy traditional tram. Another nice town to visit and make a day of is Andratx in the south-west of Mallorca. Its market is held on Wednesdays.
