Most markets in Mallorca are held in the morning. Try to arrive before 10.30am because many markets are all finished and packed up by 1.30pm.

The nearest big market to Calas de Mallorca, is held at nearby Manacor every Monday at the at Plaça Ramon Llull, along with a Saturday market at Plaça de sa Bassa and a daily fruit and vegetable market on the Plaça Constitució. There's usually a good selection of locally produced fruit, vegetables and crafts on offer, along with a selection of other Mallorcan products including lace tablecloths and leather handbags.

Every Sunday, a large street market is also held in the centre of Felanitx. There's usually a good selection of locally produced fruit, vegetables and crafts on offer, along with a selection of other Mallorcan products including flowers and clothes etc.

A special market bus is always laid on from Calas de Mallorca, although these are always very full by the time they arrive at the market. So, if there are a number of you that can travel together it's often worth considering taking a taxi for the short trip.

There is also a very small street market held every Tuesday on the Passeig de la Sirena in Porto Colom.

During the summer months, a further market is also held on the Carrer Tamarell and Camí de la Mar, in the centre of the resort of S'Illot, on a Thursday evening from around 18:00 to 23:00.

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.

Another market worth visiting if you have time is the one through the streets of Palma (on the 'Avenidas') on a Saturday morning.

Bargains to be had are lace tablecloths and leather handbags, but do try to haggle over the price.

BEWARE of pickpockets at markets just as you would back home!
