Welcome to Alcudia! Alcudia is a destination that invites you to discover a different way of tourism. Beyond its stunning beaches and landscapes, this beautiful Mallorcan town offers a unique experience through its markets and street markets. We would like to invite you to immerse yourself in the local authenticity.
Located in the north of the island, Alcudia is considered by Mallorcans to be a hidden treasure thanks to its great history and charming atmosphere. Today we bring you a tour of Alcudia’s markets that you are sure to love.
The Alcudia Market is a place not to be missed during your visit. Every Tuesday and Sunday, the main square of the old town is filled with stands offering a wide range of products. Its streets are filled with stands full of fresh and delicious products, from fruit and vegetables to cold meats, cheeses, olives and freshly baked bread.
It is an incredible experience if you are a gastronomy lover and especially if you want to get to know and taste the authentic Mallorcan cuisine while enjoying the lively atmosphere twice a week.
We invite you to immerse yourself in this different way of getting to know the city because we are sure you won’t be left indifferent. As a recommendation on what day is best to visit, in our opinion, it depends entirely on personal taste. If you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, Tuesdays are usually the ideal choice because the locals are usually working, and you will probably find a more touristy crowd. However, if you want to find a more local and authentic atmosphere, the best day to visit is Sunday because there are also other markets.
Alcudia street market
In addition to the weekly market, the most common in the town, Alcudia also hosts a street market held on Sunday mornings in the Avenida de los Prínceps d’Espanya. Here you can find a wide variety of products, from clothes, shoes and accessories to leather goods, ceramics and souvenirs. It is the perfect place to look for unique gifts and souvenirs of your visit to Alcudia.
So yes, we consider it a must-visit. We invite you to explore the stands with curiosity and discover the local handicrafts and handmade products that reflect the true essence of the island.
As a personal tip, if you want to take advantage and find a “2 for 1” in markets, the best day is Sunday, although we advise you to get up early so you can stroll freely through the streets without the crowds. It is a very authentic experience and well worth it.
If you are a lover of organic and locally sourced products, we recommend you to visit the Alcudia Organic Market, it will become your ideal place!
It is held every Tuesday and Thursday in Plaça de la Constitució. Here you’ll find fresh fruit and vegetables, honey, olive oil, bread, wine and other organic, certified, zero-kilometre and local products. As well as enjoying healthy food, you’ll have the chance to meet the producers and learn about their sustainable practices – don’t hesitate to ask the sellers about the products that catch your eye!
Tips for enjoying markets
We invite you to let yourself be carried away by the charms of the markets of Alcudia and connect with the culture and history of the island.
In addition, here are some tips that are sure to enhance your experience. First of all, we encourage you to get up early and enjoy the stands when they are freshly opened, as this is when the atmosphere is at its calmest and most authentic. On the other hand, don’t hesitate to take the time to browse the stands and ask about the traditional recipes.
Finally, you can’t leave without tasting the empanadas, the cocas mallorquinas, the ensaimadas and above all a good bread with sobrasada. You’ll thank us for it!
