They’re a fantastic way to steep yourself in Majorcan culture, seeing the local sights – as many of the markets are held in main squares – and meeting the faces behind the products.

When wandering through the maze of stalls, you can expect to see handmade crafts, leather goods, clothing, jewellery, fruits and veggies and much, much more. The markets are often very busy in the afternoon, so getting there early and enjoying the cool, morning weather is usually a good idea.
