Ibiza markets

Ibiza is well known for its hippy markets, street and food markets and ones selling second hand goods. Markets happen all year round with the majority taking place during the summer season.

Have you heard about Ibiza's famous Hippy Market? It's one of the island top attractions and a must-see for every holidaymaker. But that's not the only market you can visit, there are many happening all over the island, so wherever you stay you can enjoy a fabulous shopping experience.

Ibiza has strong artistic roots going back to the early '60s when artisans, painters and designers flocked to the island to experience its unique atmosphere, incredible light and freedom of expression. All this comes through in the markets held on the island where handmade items of clothing, jewellery and artefacts can be bought.

The biggest markets are the Punta Arabí Hippy Market on Wednesday in Es Caná and the Las Dalias Hippy Market on Saturday in San Carlos.

Below is a list of the regular markets that happen around the island, some open only in the summer season, others all year round. Each has its own unique atmosphere. Some major on local handicrafts, others bring you exotic jewellery, textiles and clothing from places such as South America, India and Indonesia. Just take a look and decide which one you'd like to visit.

Please note that dates and times may change during the year. We have provided websites where available, so please check before going.
