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.

Palma Markets - Daily
Palma has a range of markets from flea markets to organic food markets. The Olivar Market is the biggest and best indoor shopping experience in the city, famous for its top-notch food with a great range of fruit, veg, meat and a well-stocked fish market. The well-known Plaça Major hosts a craft market tailored towards tourists looking for souvenirs throughout the year. During the summer months, there's a handsome summer craft market down in Sa Llotja, along the seafront. For a gourmet experience, visit the San Juan Gastronomic Market. It opened in 2015 to great acclaim and offers the foodie much more than just fruit and veg stalls, instead expect restaurants and a street-food vibe.
Pollença Market - Sundays
In the north, just a few kilometres away from the family favourite holiday town of Port de Pollença, lies the historic town of Pollença. This village hosts an arts & crafts, local produce and nic-nacks market on Sunday mornings. Pollença is well worth a trip in its own right, boasting pretty traditional Mallorcan buildings, so do factor in some time here to have a look around. The market square is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee and soak up the atmosphere whilst listening to the live music acts in the square. Dates & details.

Sóller Market - Saturdays
Over in the west of the island is the popular town of Sóller, and their market is held on Saturday mornings attracting people from all over the island.
