Son Ferriol fair is for all ages. | G. ALOMAR


The farming, industry and commerce fair in Son Ferriol stands out because Palma doesn’t really do fairs of this type.

There are agricultural parts of the city, and Son Ferriol is one of them. The farming and livestock cooperative is active in organising the fair together with the local association for industry and commerce. It is a triumph of local organisation which is now getting rather more institutional support from the town hall and the Council of Mallorca than it has done in the past.

The fair is held in what is described as the “village within Palma”, it having been held over from March because of Covid. In its normal time slot, Son Ferriol is one of Mallorca’s more important fairs as it ushers in the spring fair season.
