MALLORCA’S market scene is one of the most varied in Spain. There are dozens of weekly and monthly markets held throughout the Island, which offer every imaginable item. Here is a selection of them:
- Weekly market in Alcudia: it is one of the most important and unique markets on the Island as it is held next to the roman walls and old city of Pollentia. Here you will find all sorts of fruit and vegetables but also hand-made items, jewellery and fur. Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, 8.30am to 1.30pm.
- Antiques and second-hand items market in Son Bugadelles (Calvia): It has been accredited as the market which draws a larger number of visitors and vendors. If you are interested in vintage furniture, clothing, shoes, toys, books and collector’s items, the Son Bugadelles market is the place to be. It takes place on Saturdays at the industrial site, between 8am and 2pm.
