Santa Catalina market

It’s not just the sheer quality of food that makes Santa Catalina Market special – it’s also about the people and the place, located in the cosmopolitan Palma neighborhood, which shares the same name. People refer more and more to Santa Catalina as the Soho of Palma, a fashionable mix of cultures from Mallorcan ladies wheeling their trolleys as they go about their daily shop beside Swedish women decked out in the latest fashion. Shop fronts are renovated, bars and restaurants sprout up while the traditional businesses disappear. The covered market brings together some 50 of the best small, local artisan food producers, sellers and experts in their particular field, offering a shopping experience open Monday to Saturday from 7am till 5pm.
