“Buzzing hub”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

This is the larger of the Palma markets, very central just north of Placa Major close to Sant Miquel. Not as atmospheric as Santa Catalina but a great selection of fish, fruit & veg, wine, cheese, olive oil.....just about all local produce you can imagine, very well presented in this large bright market.
Pop in for something to take home or for a selection of cheese, meats etc to nibble at your pleasure. We picked up some great local wines, sliced ham, salami & manchego perfect for our own tapas selection.

“not a restaurant but a great placet to eat!”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

If you like markets and have a place to cook, this place is great! We walked in on the fish side and it was somewhat like Pike´s Place in Seattle with just a smack in the face of color and fish (note that it was weirdly difficult for us to find the market - I guess I was looking for outdoor stalls and this place is indoors to the side of the small open plaza ringed with cafes - i was just about to give up and go eat pastries when we noticed the door everyone was going in). Everything from produce to cheese and ham to raw oysters and champagne. Upstairs is a supermarket in case you want to round out your meal. You can also buy cute though pricey (20 euro) straw and leather shopping baskets.
