A must visit market

Definitely the best market in Mallorca, where you will find all kinds of local specialties from cheese and meat to oysters. I loved the oyster bar, don't miss it. Also you can find lots of places to try paellas, tapas and much more. A must for foodies.

I though I had real tapas until I ate here. It's the real deal. You need to go where they sell the fish and at the end you will find all the locals eating here. What a great experience. The market its self is amazing

Please just walk around for a few minutes before you buy anything. So many options for great fruits, meats, and more. Gets some ballota ham and a soft baguette. The prices are very reasonable.

The market is great no doubt about it although overpriced and a certain class of locals shop here. Some fish and fruit+veg stalls are mid priced others are too pricey but there is a great buzz.

Very vibrant and attractive market. Highly recommend trying to get a bar stool at the Bar de Peix - or whatever its called - just inside the entrance door on the west side of the market. Good price; zingingly fresh fish; slightly indifferent service - at the functional end of service, but that's the deal really - good place to... More

This market is a great place to people watch. We were there on a Friday when there were crowds buying fish for dinner. We sat in the Sushi King restaurant and had a great view of the hustle and bustle over excellent sushi and a couple of glasses of wine. Well worth visiting when in Palma

After a renovation of the market hall Olivar a few years ago, you will find everything for food and beverage. Fresh fish, meat, fruits etc. with a huge variety. Also some small restaurants and bars for bits and bites. A must when you are in Palma.

Thoroughly recommend visiting this market. Just to see the vast array of food stuff for sale is worth it. We rolled up about 11.30 am for a late breakfast of Oysters and Champagne. Absolutely wonderful. We then perused the rest of the market and just enjoyed the total experience and charm of the place.
