About Market Days in Mallorca
Almost every town in Mallorca has a weekly market. Most start early at around 08:00 and wind up by lunchtime, while in the summer there are some great night markets all around the island.
The larger markets all follow a similar pattern: fresh produce around the main square, specialist food stalls fanning out from there, some 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! 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 there too.
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.
Markets in Palma
Palma has a range of markets from flea markets to organic food markets. Two of the best food markets are to be found here. The Olivar Market is a huge and colourful indoor shopping experience with a great range of fruit, veg, meat and a separate, well-stocked fish market. The San Juan Gastronomic Market, which opened in 2015 to great acclaim, 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.
Inca & Sineu Markets
The biggest market on the island is held on Thursdays at Inca, halfway between Palma and Alcúdia, while the most traditional is the Wednesday agricultural and livestock market at Sineu, right in the centre of the island. At Inca Market, they sell everything from fruit and vegetables to olives, olive oil, 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.
Alcúdia & Santa Maria del Camí Markets
The walled town of Alcúdia in the north (just a couple of kilometres from the beach resorts of Port d'Alcúdia) 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. It's very popular as it literally sells everything - think flea market combined with fresh fruit and vegetables! You'll also find plenty of local produce from the area, as well as a small organic section.
Consell & Pollença Markets
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.
Santanyí, Sóller & Andratx Markets
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.
