Sineu Market

Address: Sineu, Sineu, Spain

Step back in time at the island’s oldest market (Wednesdays only).

This traditional produce and livestock market was established by Jaume II in 1306, and I suspect it hasn’t changed a great deal since. It’s so refreshing to visit a market that’s not all cheap Chinese clothing and plastic tat, but actually sells thing you might like: locally woven baskets, homemade jams, goats cheese wrapped in esparto grass, flagons of local wine and olive oil are among just some of the foodie treats on offer.

Value for money

Expert tips

Sineu is the centre of local taverns called ‘cellers’, which specialise in wine poured straight from giant barrels, and monster plates of island delicacies like frito Mallorqui, (fried innards and offal).
