Irresistible temptations, live music and the best shopping atmosphere around
There’s no doubt about it. You’re going to love Santa Eulària des Riu’s markets, especially those that stay open in the winter. They’re cozier, with a distinct local atmosphere and without the crowds. A fantastic opportunity to home in on that special find, the one with your name written on it, while you enjoy a pleasant morning of retail therapy with your friends, your family or your other half.
Over time, markets have become one of Ibiza’s main attractions, and those held in our municipality head the list. Finding original designs, acquiring craftwork, discovering secondhand treasures or just strolling through the stalls enjoying the festive atmosphere are, without a doubt, some of the top entertainments for visitors – and a type of entertainment that fits right into an off-season visit to the island. We have three markets that stay open year round: Las Dalias Hippy Market, the Cala Llenya Flea Market and the Sunday Craft Market in Santa Eulària des Riu.
The first of these is held every Saturday throughout the year, staying open in the off season until 6pm. Its stalls feature fashion, leatherwork, handmade jewelry, original decorative objects, accessories and local gastronomic products. There is also live music during part of the day. The flea market at Cala Llenya is held every Sunday from 10am to 5pm and is a great option for bargain hunters and secondhand treasure seekers. Its relaxed friendly atmosphere and local colour make for a laidback Sunday outing. The stalls are set up in a pleasant open space surrounded by pine trees, and live music is always part of the package. Also on Sundays, from 10am to 2 pm along the Passeig de s’Alamera in Santa Eulària des Riu, some thirty artisans, farmers and producers offer up locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, honey, sweets made from carob as well as various types of craftwork, including paper, textiles, leather, metal and other materials.
