In the heart of Palma is the Olivar Market, which houses over a hundred colorful stands with fresh, high-quality products, where you can taste wines and tapas.
The Olivar Market is located on the square of the same name, between Plaça d'Espanya and Sant Miquel Street in the heart of the city. It is the largest and most important market on the island. It consists of 115 stalls with all kinds of products: fish and seafood, agricultural products, typical specialties, sausage, olives, wine shops, spices, gourmet products, bakeries and bread shops, kitchenware, plants, etc.
On the upper floor there is a supermarket and some shops and bars, which grill your just bought fish. The market also has its own parking, and entrances on all four sides
The market today is no longer a place to just buy; It has become a place where you can taste tapas and wines, discover a new taste and make direct contact with high quality fresh products. You can even participate in workshops and guided tours
The market, opened in 1951, was built under the direction of the city architect Antonio García Ruiz Rosselló. It is a good example of regional architecture and has been renovated several times since the opening. Its opening replaced the former wholesale market on the main square.
The visit of the market can be completed with a walk through the nearby Sant Miquel Street. It is one of Palma's most important business streets. From here you can easily reach the town hall, on Plaça de Cort.
