Local Markets

Most markets in Mallorca are held in the morning. Try to arrive before 10.30am because many markets are all finished and packed up by 1.30pm.

The nearest street market to Cala d'Or is held every Wednesday and Saturday morning on the Plaza Mayor in Santanyi. There's usually a good selection of locally produced fruit, vegetables and crafts on offer, along with a selection of other Mallorcan products including lace tablecloths and leather handbags.

A traditional Mallorcan market is also held every Sunday at "Sa Plaša" in nearby Felanitx, offering a good selection of locally produced fruit, vegetables and crafts, along with a selection of other Mallorcan products including flowers and clothes etc, all at reasonable prices. Felanitx municipal market was first inaugurated on 9 May 1871, although the building you see today wasn't completed until 1936.

If you don't fancy the bus ride into Felanitx for the Sunday market, many of the same traders also have stalls at the twice weekly market held at Porto Colom every Tuesday and Saturday throughout the year.

If you have access to a car, or fancy a half day organised excursion, the biggest and most famous weekly market on Mallorca is held every Thursday morning around the streets of Inca. Although also selling a wide selection of other goods, Inca market is most famous for its leather goods, so expect to find a wide selection of leather shoes, bags and jackets.

Another market worth visiting if you have time is the one through the streets of Palma (on the 'Avenidas') on a Saturday morning.

Bargains to be had are lace tablecloths and leather handbags, but do try to haggle over the price.

BEWARE of pickpockets at markets just as you would back home!
