Every day is market day in Mallorca. There is hardly a town of note that doesn't stage a weekly market - although they are relatively rare in the better know tourist resorts; so you may have to travel a bit. Some markets are better than others of course; but they are fairly similar in their layout and the type of goods on sale. Most markets will sell fresh produce - fresh fruit and veg, hams, olives and nuts etc; leather goods - shoes, handbags, wallets; clothing; craft items aimed at tourists and range of other specialist items.
The Saturday market in Palma is regarded as one to avoid; most people prefering to visit the largest market on the island which is in Inca on Thursdays. Other noteworthy markets are Andratx market on a Wednesday; the Sunday market at Santa Maria and the traditional agricultural market Sineu on Wednesdays - although it has become more of a clothes market in recent years.
All markets start early, and it is advisable to arrive no later than 10.00am as most don't continue much past 1.00pm.
