5 must visit hippy markets on Ibiza

Shopping, island style, at Ibiza's amazing markets.

So, you have already taken a dip in the warm Balearic sea, marvelled at sunsets, partied all night and visited Formentera. It is now time to indulge yourself in one of Ibiza's best attractions: its various Hippy Markets. Rooted in the hippy movement that fled to Ibiza during the 60s, they are scattered all over the island and cater for every taste.


Las Dalias Hippy Market - San Carlos

Las Dalias in San Carlos is probably the best-known hippy market on the island due to its very inviting and picturesque atmosphere.

Welcomed by exotic colours that surround visitors upon entrance, it features a 200 stall market where you can find crafts from all over the globe, clothes, unusual musical instruments, hammocks and antiques. You can also pamper yourself with a body massage, a palm reading or enjoy a snack at the food stands or in the bar. DJs play from mid-afternoon till closing.

When: Saturdays - all year round - 10:00 to 20:00 (19:00 during the winter season)

Las Dalias night market also offers a more relaxed market on the evenings of Sunday, Monday and Tuesday during the summer nights. Perfect to enjoy a live music dinner in a cosy environment. There also is a wide variety of activities available for the little ones.

When: June -  September - Mondays, Tuesdays and Sundays from 19:00, August - Mon, Tue and Sunday from 7 pm


Sant Jordi Flea Market

San Jordi's flea market remains the most authentic and a local's favourite, getting most crowded during the winter.

It is held at the hippodrome in Sant Jordi and anyone can sell without the need for a permit. Therefore, it is possible to find virtually everything (seriously, everything) for very reasonable prices. It is quite big, so make sure time is on your side - you will most definitely be tempted to see it all.

There is a bar and from midday drummers often add to the atmosphere.

When: Saturdays - all year round - 8:00 to 15:00
