What hippy markets are there in Ibiza?

Ibiza’s hippie markets also really started in the 50s/60s. Alternative epicureans (the hippies) settled on the pirate island and made their money making and selling artisanal products. They gathered on a plain, a parking lot or in a forest and displayed produce on their rugs. Ibiza’s hippie markets are unique and many trinkets are still made by the same hippies or their children. The following markets are worth visiting:

  1. Las Dalias (San Carlos) / Every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  2. Punta Arabi (Es Canar) / Every Wednesday in summer from 10:00 to 18:00
  3. San Joan / Every Sunday from 10:00 to 15:00
  4. San Antonio / Every Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  5. Cala Llenya / Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In addition to the original hippie markets, there are other fun markets in Ibiza. A real flea market in San Jordi or an eco-market with organic products in Sant Josep. Some hotels like Atzaro and Pikes Hotel or restaurants like Aubergine or Es Caliu also organize occasional markets with clothing, accessories and souvenirs. So there are plenty of markets for great shopping!

  1. San Jordi flea market / Every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  2. Eco market Sant Josep / Every Saturday in summer from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Hippie market Las Dalias in San Carlos

This market was founded in 1954 by Juanito. That was a good move by him, because currently this hippie market has as many as 20,000 visitors a day during the high season! The market, which is located just outside San Carlos, features 200 stalls and is also a stage for concerts and other events. It is 1 of the North’s most important meeting places. The range of products is vast; jewelry, exotic musical instruments, colorful bags, artwork, rugs, hammocks, figurines, you can find it all at this historic hippie market. In the middle of the grounds is a bar where you can have a refreshing drink between strolls. This market also has a restaurant.

Hippie market Punta Arabi in Es Canar

Relive the ’70s at Ibiza’s largest hippie market: Punta Arabi. Founded in 1973 by Ibizan artists and hippies, this hippie market takes place every Wednesday in high season. An average of 13,000 people from all over the island travel to this colorful hippie market every week. With the 400 to 500 stalls you can find there, you won’t be bored easily. Stroll among the stalls and pine trees, enjoy live music, living statues and hot snacks. You’ll feel like a kid in a candy store among the beautiful jewelry, artwork, handmade leather goods and colorful clothing. Besides authentic products, this market unfortunately offers many mass-produced, “made in China” products.

Punta Arabi is located just beyond Es Canar in the northeast.

Why go?
A music, a drink and shopping for nice souvenirs.


Directions:

From Santa Eularia, drive north and follow the signs for Es Canar. After about 8 minutes get the exit to Es Canar and drive through the beautiful village along the promenade (left) to the parking lot. The parking lot does require payment. Punta Arabi is also easily accessible by bus.


Notes:

The parking lot under the trees is very bumpy and also watch carefully that you cannot be built in. It is highly recommended for a day(s) out.Hipp

Stroll past the stalls and enjoy the live music. There are many handmade products and goodies to be found. For example, have a personalized bracelet made on the spot.

Hippie market of San Antoni

This small, new market in the west is organized by Saigo, who made sure that the market in Sant Juan gave real artists a place to sell their art. This “El Mercat de Tots” has not only handmade products, ecological edibles and art, but also live music and activities for children. Also, paella is prepared in and large pan. Started in 2018, local vendors all hope he makes the Friday market in San Antoni as popular as the Sunday market in San Joan. So do check their Facebook page for the latest news.


Opening hours:

Every Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Paella starting at 2:30 p.m. From June through September from 6 p.m. to midnight due to the heat.


Location:

Plaza Norte, San Antoni de Portmany, behind the church.

Why go?
Currently the only market in the west, good to combine with a sunset.


Directions:

Drive in the direction of San Antoni. The market is right in the heart of downtown San Antoni de Portmany, so we recommend parking in the large free parking lot near Cafe Mambo and Cafe del Mar and then walking back. It is easiest to reach if, just before you arrive at San Antoni, you take the traffic circle 1 quarter towards Santa Agnes and then at the second traffic circle 3 quarters past the supermarket Mercadona as straight ahead.


Notes:

Keep an eye on the Facebook page for any changes in times and what performances are taking place. This market is good to combine with a visit to Restaurant Rita´s Cantina or the beach of Cala Salada.

San Jordi flea market

Experience a real Ibicenco flea market? Then go to the flea market of Sant Jordi, the village between Las Salinas and Ibiza town. The market is held on the grounds of the San Jordi Hipódromo (horse racing track), which you can also see well in the café: beautiful old photos of horse races and trophies. Many locals sell from their car anything salable: used books, vintage clothes, bohemian-style jewelry, and so on. You can find nicer vintage stuff in the winter than in the summer. This market is mostly frequented by locals and is still somewhat less known to tourists. Here too, as in many other Ibizan markets, live music can be heard, for example the drummers of Benirras.


Opening hours:

The market is held every Saturday (year-round) from 09:00 to 14:00.


Location:

A little past the town of San Jordi.

Why go?
Fewer tourists, more clutter. Great to combine with a half-day Las Salinas, Es Cavallet or Playa den Bossa beach visit.


Directions by car:

From Ibiza town, drive to the airport and take the Las Salinas, Es Cavallet and San Jordi exit. Traffic circle 1 quarter and then you can park right and left for free. It can sometimes be crowded with cars, also because it is near the beach exits.

Eco-market Sant Josep

Do you want ecological products, organic meat, environmentally friendly fruits and vegetables? Or would you like to take home a true “artisan” Ibiza gift? Then head to Sant Josep’s eco-market. Many Ibicencos make the crafts themselves on site, such as wicker baskets, rope slippers or folkloric Ibiza dolls. This market started in the summer of 2017 and therefore a bit less known and also not that big yet.


Opening hours:

Sant Josep’s ecomarket is held on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.


Location:

Heart of downtown Sant Josep.

Why go?
Nice market for gifts or souvenirs if you appreciate Ibiza folklore, or want healthy food.


Directions:

Drive to Sant Josep via Ibiza town or San Antonio. The market is on the main road through the village.


Notes:

Perhaps a good time to visit Sant Josep Church or one of the many nice restaurants such as Raco Verd or Destino. Or drive on to one of the many beaches to the south such as Cala Vadella, Cala dHort, Cala Bassa or Cala Tarida.

Cala Llenya

Perhaps one of the nicest markets on the island, in that it is popular with true hippies. In terms of products, it is sort of a mix of San Jordi’s flea market and Punta Arabi’s commercial market. But best of all, it’s all about food at the eponymous restaurant and live performances. Sometimes cover bands, or rock bands, but also often gipsy music, with visitors spontaneously dancing flamenco.


Opening hours:

Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check through their Facebook to see who is performing, but usually the mini-concerts begin around 12:30 p.m.


Location:

Around and around Restaurant Cala Llenya.

Why go?
The alternative atmosphere and great live music, which is often danced to. Close to the beautiful beach Cala Llenya, so good to combine with a morning swimming or sunbathing.


Directions:

From Santa Eularia take the road to San Carlos and the village exit to Cala Llenya.


Notes:

This popular market had to stop in 2018 due to lack of proper paperwork. Back in Winter 2019. But check their Facebook page to see if the market is there and what performances are on.

Cala Llonga

Cala Llonga is a fine “after beach” market. Enjoy shopping with a nice drink in your hand, listening to live music under the clear starry sky. Many handmade products.


Opening hours:

In summer every Thursday from 6 p.m. to midnight.


Location:

On the promenade of Cala Llonga.


Why go.

Great to combine with a day at the beach or lunch at Amante (Sol d´en Serra) and often has live music.


Directions:

From Santa Eularia, drive on the road to Jesus and then after Siesta take the exit on the left. Or from Ibiza town take the road through Jesus past Can Furnet and Roca Llisa. After the Cala Llonga exit on the right, you can continue to the beach and park on the right.


Comments:

Nice to go with children late afternoon already, because the market is near the playground on the beach.
