Friday through Sunday mornings, the second-hand street market in Palma is also great for crafts and local delicacies.
The rastro is a cherished local institution. Find out why.
A great way to spend your morning is browsing one of the island's rastros (flea markets), at several points on different days, especially Friday through Sunday. The most popular is the Mercadillo de Palma, held Saturday mornings on Avinguda Gabriel Alomar y Villalonga. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings you can go to the towns of Sant Jordi, Calvia, Esporles and Consell, where it's difficult not to find something interesting, either as a unique souvenir for yourself or a gift for someone back home.
