Agriculture is a mainstay of the Mallorcan economy, and the central part of Majorca is devoted to farming.
Pork has long been a central part of the Mallorcan diet and the island's own Sobrassada sausage is a delicious and unique spicy paste. Gourmet sea salt has grown in demand in recent years and the salt plains to the south east of Majorca are producing flavoured salts for a global market.
Mallorca's local produce is celebrated in the Autumn months with many fairs & festivals dedicated to such products as the olive, mushrooms, pumpkins, wine, sobrassada and honey. Have a look at our Main Events in Mallorca page for more information.
