Nearly all the towns and larger villages have a market day, and the further inland you venture, these become a real focal point in the weekly calendar. Our favourite (and the largest) is at Sineu every Wednesday morning. The majority of stalls offer fresh fruit and veg, local specialities (cheeses, meats, fish) and all varieties of leather products.
A close second to Sineu is Inca Market. This is held every Thursday morning and offers much of the same with a lot of leather stalls (as Inca is the leather capital of the island).
We also love Santanyi market on a Saturday. It’s a vibrant mix of fresh local foods and some really tasteful craft items.
Our pick of the other markets include Santa Maria, Alcudia and Campos.
