Between shopping, sightseeing and visiting one or the other sight, you can enjoy sustainable local products in an ambience that has not been reminiscent of a “market hall” for a long time. Tapas and sandwiches and, for some time now, sushi, caviar and oysters are offered at many gastro stands.

When the physical well-being has been satisfied, there should still be time for weekend shopping. In the Mercat d´Olivar from 7:00 am to 2:30 pm, numerous fish stalls offer freshly caught products. The side dishes for your weekend menu are right next door in the fruit and vegetable hall. By the way: The queen and her entourage also regularly visit the Mercat d`Olivar in summer.
Anyone looking for a souvenir from vacation for their loved ones will also find it there. There is a wide selection of typical Mallorcan handicrafts.
