Tradition and gastronomy at Mallorca’s markets

Visiting Mallorca local markets is a great way to get to know the island culture and traditions. In the area where Sagalés-Caldentey operates, the most notable are the markets of Santanyí and Artà; which we will explain how to get to by public transport.

The growing interest in good food and local produce has brought about a resurgence in traditional markets. Every day in Mallorca countless markets are held in different towns and villages, an ancient tradition that continues to this day. In the Llevant-Migjorn area you will find Artà and Santanyí markets:

Artà: takes place every Tuesday from 9 am to 2 pm in the town centre. This market is very popular with locals and tourists alike and is divided into three different parts: the outdoor market, the covered food market and the crafts market in Na Batlessa gardens. Visiting the open market is a great way to discover some of the town’s oldest and most charming streets and places, as well as some of its most important architecture and heritage.

Santanyí: held every Wednesday and Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm in the town centre. Santanyí is the most southerly municipality on the island of Mallorca and has an open-air market that occupies all of Plaça Major and a large number of neighbouring streets. It is one of the most charming markets in Mallorca, where you can find almost everything, including local fruit and vegetables, cheese, preserves, sausages and cured meat, and stalls selling flowers, clothing, accessories, cookware and decorative items, among others. And, of course, crafts such as Pòrtol pottery, roba de llengües (typical Mallorcan textiles) and sculptures made from Santanyí’s famous stone.
