Shopping and Markets

Markets

Very popular in Mallorca and a must for visitors. They are held in open squares, mornings only, all over the island. Here you will find the best fresh fruits and vegetables. Go as early in the morning as possible. Around the main squares also you will find clothes, shoes, knives, pottery, carved wood, souvenirs, etc. Here are the “mercats” (Mallorquin for markets) closest to you:

• Pollensa – Every Sunday

• Port de Pollensa - Every Wednesday

• Alcudia – Every Tuesday and Sunday

• Sa Pobla - Every Sunday

• Inca - Every Thursday

• Sineu - Every Wednesday

(mornings only)
