Been to several markets in Spain. Where there is nothing wrong with this one it just felt a little soulless. There is really only one decent place to eat and it is so popular you cannot get close to the bar to order - unless you're lucky and secure a seat. If you want a real Spanish market go to... More

Great market in Palma town, walk straight through the main square (coming from the Cathederal area) and out the other side, then after a short walk turn right at the old curch with the big dome on the roof and its straight ahead. Awesome fish stalls where you can get food and a cold wine/beer or a coffee. Also other... More

Great to experience the sights, smells and fresh taste of the best food on offer. Pure theatre watching the fishmongers selling and preparing their produce. Superb tapas and wine on offer. Definitely worth putting on your must visit list when in Palma

We visited the market twice in a 5-day visit to Palma as the food we bought to take away the first time was so delicious we just had to go back for more. Superb tortillas españolas and mushroom and pepper salad from one stall, wonderful (and huge) roast beef sandwiches from another, and lovely tiramisu from a third. There is... More

This Farmer's market is fully stocked, although doesn't offer much fish. For packaged and other household items I use the supermarket located upstairs. Getting fresh ingredients for my family is a one stop shop!

Mercado del Olivar is a must see for those wanting to experience a true spanish market place. The vendors are very creative with showcasing their products and it is a feast for the eyes, ears and nose! There are countless stalls selling fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, fish, even traditional Mallorcan kitchen utensils and crafts. Amongst the vendors, there are also... More

This market rivals La Boqueria in Barcelona. We consider it a must visit when one is in Palma. The fish market and the eating stands are particular standouts. (We have reviewed the four eating stands we visited separately.) The market is popular with both tourists and locals. In short, if you want a feel for the real Mallorca, this is... More

Lots of excellent food purveyors and Mallorcan merchandise in this classic super clean Spanish market. Had a pre-lunch vermut with a variety of cocas (flatbreads) and bought a few woven Mallorcan bags. Lots to check out and the market is bustling.

Difficult to go wrong with sushi and sashimi based in a fish market! We were happy with the quality of the selection we chose accompanied by crisp white wine and Sapporo beer Great for lunch while visiting the market
