A long-running street market in Santa Eulària with a wealth of original stuff to browse
Just another groovy Wednesday
Before mass tourism really took off in Ibiza, a good bit of the island's allure for foreigners back in the 1960s and 70s had a decidedly hippie vibe, and even today there are still a few remnants of that era hanging around here and there. Exhibit A is this weekly market in the Punta Arabí section of Santa Eulària des Riu, held every Wednesday since 1973. You'll find handmade local handicrafts of various types; distinctive antiques and costume jewelry; highly original home-décor items; natural cosmetics and beauty products; Ibiza-style clothing; and various other merchandise that will get anyone's retail therapeutic juices going. As a bonus, there's also live music and other performances, and plenty of spots for catching a bite to eat. Definitely a Wednesday must for local flavour.
