The markets attract a mix of locals – shopping for fruit, vegetables and groceries – and tourists soaking up the atmosphere and seeking fun souvenirs. The Alcudia market is a great option for finding local produce at great prices for making a picnic lunch or dinner of local specialities.

1. Where is the market?

The Alcudia market is found beside the city walls in the square at El Passeig de la Mare de Deu de la Victoria. During winter, it mostly covers the square but during the summer tourist season it’s much bigger, spreading from here through the narrow streets of Alcudia old town. The main food, fruit and veg is found in the original location at El Passeig while the other streets house the souvenirs, clothes, bags, jewellery and much more.
