The island of Mallorca preserves the traditions deeply rooted in agricultural work and the different seasons of the year. Before tourists started coming here, the market was not only a place where farm workers could meet, but also the local point of sale for their produce.
It still serves the same purpose, but today it is an essential place for all the village’s residents to catch on the latest news and events, to meet friends, etc. Mallorcan town and village markets are held weekly and the goods they offer depend on the time of the year (Christmas, local festivals, summer, etc.). Stallholders sell fresh produce including seasonal fruit and vegetables and other local products such as cheese, sausages, etc., as well as handicrafts, clothing and leather goods.
Our area has weekly markets in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Son Servera and Son Carrió, as well as seasonal markets in the coastal resorts of Cala Millor, Sa Coma and S’Illot.
In summer the number of both shoppers and stallholders increases considerably and the markets are one of the best places to experience the true atmosphere of a place.
