Street Markets are a vital part of Mallorcan Life. Strolling along the cobbled streets of traditional Mallorcan villages, soaking up the atmosphere as your eyes scan for bargains…could there be a better way to get to know the Island and its locals? There are markets daily from 8.00 – 13.30ish in almost every village in Mallorca so you are never far from a shopping opportunity!
Why visit a street market in Mallorca?
The markets in Mallorca are an excellent place to shop for fruits, vegetables, flowers, and local produce such as Mallorcan sobrassada, botifarra sausages, a wide range of local honey or traditional Mallorcan cheese. The street markets allow the perfect opportunity to make like a Mallorcan. So, all you need to do is grab a recipe from one of the many cookbooks at Villa Esquina, head out early to buy your fresh ingredients and enjoy a traditional Mallorcan meal back at the Villa!
Stalls also offer handicrafts, leather bags, handmade jewellery, accessories and clothes. Visiting the markets is a fun way to enjoy the local culture, support local farmers, artisans, artists and visit the surrounding areas of Villa Esquina.
Pollensa Market – Sunday 8am to 1pm
Arguably the most important market on the island, every Sunday the serene streets and square of Pollensa become the vibrant stage for over 3,000 stalls.
From 8am until 1pm you can find stalls crammed with food, crafts, shoes, clothes, plants in the Plaça Major (main square) and Ca Les Monnares Square squeezing out to surrounding streets. Make sure you get there early as thousands from all over the island come to visit this market. Haggle like a professional to secure the best bargains. All the local shops are also open, so you’ll be in for a real shopping extravaganza!
Puerto Pollensa – Wednesday 8am to 1.30pm
The market in Port de Pollença / Puerto Pollensa is held every Wednesday, between 8am and 1.30pm, in Miquel Capllonch Square, next to the Mare de Déu del Carme church. The market is fairly new, having started in 1986. However, it has grown form 50/60 stalls to 197, among which you can find fruits and vegetables, crafts, clothes, shoes and gifts stand out, plants and other typical products from the island.
Alcudia Markets – Tuesdays & Sundays 9am to 2pm
Situated beside the city walls, but spreading through the picturesque narrow streets during tourist season, Alcudia Market starts at about 9am and carries on usually until 2pm-ish
There are two sections to this market. The main one is dedicated to local farmers selling their products; and the second section has plenty of stalls selling absolutely everything: shoes, bags, handbags, football shirts, souvenirs…you name it… We love to walk around the market in the morning and then grab some tapas for lunch in one of the many restaurants in the town center.
Sineau – Wednesday 8am to 1pm
Well worth a visit, the traditional market of Sineau will dazzle with its kaleidoscope of coloured peppers, charm with its local merchandise and perhaps shock with its live piglets and lambs tied up like parcels, alongside dogs & chickens for sale. It is a farmer’s market after all. There are pony rides for the little ones and street musicians causing serious traffic jams in the already tight space available between stalls and buildings. But relax, you’re in Majorca now!
