Markets in Mallorca: Don’t miss out on this experience!

Many markets, especially in larger towns such as Santanyi or Sineu, have become very touristy. Nevertheless, they are still a popular opportunity for locals to do the week’s grocery shopping. Besides shopping, the markets in Mallorca are great to meet up with friends. In many villages, the market is the event of the week! It’s the perfect opportunity to exchange the latest gossip over a caña (beer) or a café con leche in one of the street cafés. Almost every village in Mallorca still has its own market and a visit is always an amazing experience!

Sineu

The farmer’s market in Sineu is one of the most beautiful on Mallorca and it’s also my personal favorite! Even though it can get quite crowded here. At the market in Sineu you can find everything from local products and handicrafts to clothing and farm animals such as chickens or goats for your own finca. The market stretches from Plaça Es Fassar around the unmissable parish church of Nuestra Senyora de Los Angeles through almost the entire city center.

Come early: The market in Sineu is very large and stretches through the entire town center!

Santanyí

The market of Santanyí is one of the most famous markets in Mallorca. Busloads of tourists set up shop here in high season to browse through the huge selection. Besides food, you can also find nice souvenirs. By the way, the market in Santanyí offers a particularly large range of fabrics!

When: Every Wednesday and Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm

Felanitx

Every Sunday, the Felanitx market is held in the east of the island. The market is also quite popular, but still not so crowded. In Felanitx you will find a weekly market and a market hall at the Plaça Constitució! In addition, the Mercat Municipal is always open in the morning from Tuesday to Sunday.

When: Every Sunday from 9am to 2pm

By the way, Felanitx is also a nice destination to explore Mallorca! In and around Felanitx there is a lot to see:

Santa Maria del Camí

I don’t find the Santa Maria market particularly pretty, but it is perhaps one of the most authentic on the island. In any case, many islanders also visit the market of Santa Maria on Sundays in search of bargains on household goods, plants and clothing. You can also find regional fruits and vegetables here. Parking in the vicinity of the marketplace is almost impossible, but there is a large parking lot just outside the village center. A little warning for tender minds: At the market in Santa Maria also live animals from budgies, chickens to puppies are being sold, some of the not in very appropriate conditions.

When: Every Sunday from 9am to 2pm

Not as picturesque as the other markets, but a large, authentic offer: The market of Santa Maria del Camí

Esporles

The market in Esporles is a little insider tip. Not many tourists stray here, but the market stalls along the main street in the village center are really idyllic. A perfect stop when you are on the way to the Tramuntana! Nearby is also the open-air museum La Granja, which is also very worth seeing!

When: Always on the 1st Saturday of the month

Palma: Plaça dels Patins

In the center of Palma you will find a small farmer’s market at Plaça dels Patins. The special feature: The market is one of the few markets on the island that names itself an organic farmer’s market!

When: Every Tuesday and Saturday from 8 am to 2 pm

Consell

A different kind of market, but still worth a visit: The flea market in Consell is the largest flea market on the island. Here you can buy furniture from old fincas, records or one or the other vintage piece! Although the flea market is held in a barren industrial area, the vibe here is always quite nice because there are so many “real” vendors offering vintage finds.

How to get to the markets & where to park

For the sake of clarity, I have omitted exact address details of the individual markets. But you won’t need them anyway! Most of the time, the market is such a big event that you just have to keep going towards the center of the village and you will automatically come across it.

Larger markets, such as those in Santa Maria or Sineu, also have a small parking guidance system to parking lots away from the market to handle the influx of visitors on market days. So you just need to follow all the other cars :)

Tip: If you want to see a lot on the island, I advise you to rent a car! They are not always cheap in high season, but the flexibility is worth it! You will see corners that would otherwise remain hidden from you! The markets are also usually easy to reach by car.

Getting to the markets in Mallorca without a car

You haven’t rented a car? Some markets, especially in the larger towns, can also be reached by public transport, for example in Sineu. However, depending on which corner of Mallorca you’re traveling from, it can be a pain to always keep an eye on the bus or train schedule. There are also some organized tours that go directly to popular markets or even beautiful locations around them:
