Majorca's street fairs and markets
Mediaeval markets, craft fairs - there's a lot going on in the streets of Palma and other towns throughout the year.
Taking it to the streets.
Throughout the year, Majorca hosts numerous fairs and markets for all kinds of audiences. In late February, to mark the Day of the Balearic Islands, there's a mediaeval market held in the Plaça de la Drassana that is very popular thanks to its atmosphere, and it's a great opportunity to check out local handicrafts and sample a range of local delicacies. Between August and September, the Passeig Sagrera comes especially alive at dusk as the streets are filled with handicrafts in its night market; here you'll find some of the most distinctive offerings in town. Book and comics collectors might want to check out the collectors' fair at the Centre Cultural La Misericòrdia on the first or third Saturday of every month.
