Colourful hustle and bustle on Mallorca – Weekly market in Santanyi
If you’ve never been there before, you’ve missed something! Santanyi is one of those beautiful places of Mallorca with the typical sandstone facades of Marés. Especially the Germans love this charming and authentic place in the southeast of the island. With all the countless small shops and well-known restaurants, it also attracts visitors and artists from all over the world. If you don’t have anything planned for Saturday or Wednesday, you should definitely plan a visit to the weekly market in Santanyi. The hustle and bustle on the market place start relatively early and if you want to secure a parking place close to the market, it’s best to arrive before 9 o’clock.
During a nice breakfast in one of the lovely cafés around the Placa, you can let the atmosphere of the colourful hustle and bustle at the weekly market in Santanyi have an effect on you. And with a freshly squeezed orange juice, café con leche, croissant or typical Mallorcan Bocadillo you can go through the shopping list and the market stalls which you have in mind. The fruit and vegetable stalls are competing with the Sant Andreu Market Church. A variety of colours that is not offered every day. Yellow lemons, oranges, colourfull vegetables, cheese & ham, homemade bread, pickled olives and in the background sandstone-coloured village houses. Regular market visitors can be recognized immediately by the rat-weaved shopping bag. If you don’t have one yet, you can buy it directly on the market. Because not only fresh and regional food but also many furnishing and decoration articles, as well as hip fashion and fashion accessories hide here in the affectionate backyards and shops. Unique items and favorite pieces change the owners. Earrings, jewellery and Ibiza fashion are particularly popular.
Time just seems to fly by and at 12 o’clock, when some stand owners slowly starts packing up, it is usually the moment to go résumé with your girlfriend, family or friend and go through at his newly won favourites and shopping bags again. For some of the visitors who come from the southwest of Mallorca or from Palma, the market visit in Santanyi can be perfectly combined on the way back with a visit to Es Trenc Beach and the Ses Salines or the Cassai Beach House in Colonia Sant Jordi. A journey to Ibiza! Or to the Caribbean! That’s probably the best way to describe the day while you are wipe the last sand off your feet.
