What you'll do

I offer 2 h. visit the oldest and most important traditional market of the island, know all the history of the market, where the products come from for sale, fish, seafood, fruits, etc, etc. The experience begins at 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m. so we avoid the hours with bunch of tourists (highest in July / August). In this way we ensure that we have a REALLY DIFFERENTIAL AND PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. When the BUNCH arrive, we leave. We will start the tour by gathering strength for the visit, eating a good plate of Iberian ham and a glass of good wine in "Casa De Yvan".Yvan is the restaurant´s owner and good friends for many years, but the important thing is that it is the best cutter and connoisseur of Hams of the island. Next we will visit the differents areas of the market where I will explain the small secrets of it, as for example how to distinguish a Mallorcan fish from an imported fish, how to cook a good lobster, as well as which fruits are sold directly of the farmer "Pages" as it is called in Mallorca. The Market is in the center of the old city that you can visit after the experience.

Where you'll be

Palma is full of tourist traps. That's why this guided tour ensures a truly different experience in the Market D'Olivar. I can tell you where to buy quietly, give real practical advice about the route and if after visiting the market you want to visit the Old Quarter of Palma (very advisable) I can also guide you which places you should not miss and which are more for mass tourism .
