Do you know the best markets in Santa Ponsa and its surroundings? The local and artisan markets are one of the island’s great strengths, as well as one of the biggest tourist interests. One of the best ways to get to know the island of Mallorca is through its traditional markets, where you can find countless different products. From the best fruit and vegetables from organic orchards to Mallorcan cheeses and sausages, fruit trees or clothing and furniture. In addition, the market in Santa Ponsa and surrounding areas are some of Mallorca’s best, so if you plan to visit the Mediterranean island, don’t miss them!
Santa Ponsa Market
The beautiful Santa Ponsa market takes place every Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. all year round. With more than 160 exhibitors of all kinds, the weekly market in the town of Calvià welcomes hundreds of visitors every weekend, both residents and tourists from all over the world.
They mainly sell handcrafted, organic and food products that stand out for their quality. The market is held in the area of the church of Santa Ponsa, specifically in the street Riu Sil. Don’t miss it!
Market of Son Ferrer
The town of Son Ferrer is a residential area only 8 minutes east of Santa Ponsa. Of course, this area does not compare to Santa Ponsa in terms of popularity or offer of leisure and tourism, but if you plan to stay in Santa Ponsa or Calvià, visiting the Son Ferrer market is certainly an essential plan as well.
This market is held on Fridays at the same time as the previous one, and in it, we can also find an enormous variety of fruits and vegetables, craft products, clothing and all kinds of Iberian or autochthonous sausages.
Traditional market of Calvià-Vila
If we talk about the best markets in and around Santa Ponsa, the one in Calvià is the first one that comes to mind after the one in Santa Ponsa. This is the most mythical, typical and ancient of the area. The traditional market here takes place on Mondays in the Villa de Calvià, near the Church of San Juan, and has about 60 stalls that are making room every morning in the main street. Again, here you will also find gastronomic wonders to satisfy your appetite, artisan products and typical decoration, as well as typical clothes or shoes and summer.
Paguera, or Peguera in Mallorcan, is only 15 minutes by car from Santa Ponsa, heading north. This area is extremely popular on the island of Mallorca, as is Santa Ponsa, and its weekly market is held every Tuesday between 8:30 am and 1:00 pm. This is particularly dominated by food products and those made by artisans from the surrounding area. It is certainly another must!
