Markets in Mallorca provide the ideal place to purchase some original Mallorcan products. In these picturesque, colourful and multi-ethnologic places you'll find nearly everything, from basic food produce to the ultimate fashion trend, all in a familiar relaxed atmosphere.
The twice weekly market at Alcudia old town is one of the most important on the island due to its atmosphere and wide variety of products on offer, including fruit and vegetables, shoes, clothes, souvenirs, leather, hippy products, hair plaits, traditional Mallorcan doughnuts, jewellery, bed linen, small animals and a whole lot more. The market spreads out through the old town, inside the walls and near the Roman City of Pollentia.
The market takes place every Tuesday and Sunday from around 8:00 to 13:00, so you'll need to get there early and be prepared to haggle like a professional to secure the best bargains. On market days, there's also a bus service linking Puerto Alcudia with Alcudia centre, running every 15 minutes or so. However, if you don't fancy the queue, there's also taxi and horse and carriage services available too.
During the summer months, a slightly smaller market also takes place every Friday from 8:30 to 1:30 at Puerto Alcudia, but since the same traders attend both events, the variety of goods for sale is somewhat limited.
If you have access to a car, or fancy a half day organised excursion, the biggest and most famous weekly market on Mallorca is held every Thursday morning around the streets of Inca. Although also selling a wide selection of other goods, Inca market is most famous for its leather goods, so expect to find a wide selection of leather shoes, bags and jackets.
If you really are in need of some retail therapy, additional markets are also held every Sunday morning, selling fresh local fruit and vegetables, as well as flowers and craft goods, around the Placa Major square in nearby Pollensa, along with a further market, held in Puerto Pollensa, every Wednesday morning.
