I love going to markets! I love walking through the different aisles and tasting and exploring the different foods on offer. Not surprisingly then, one of my favourite things in Mallorca is going to the Santa Catalina Market in Palma. You can shop any kind of food possible – seasonal fruit and vegetables, meats catering to all tastes, perfect jamon, fresh fish of the day, locally made olive oil and (my favourite) delicious, ripe and tasty tomatoes! Everything is of the highest quality, making shopping here a little pricier than in your average supermarket but the quality you get makes all the difference.
But what makes this market truly amazing is the fact that you can have your fresh fish, prepared right there and then. Buy at your favourite stand and then head over to Bar des Mercat where you can have them prepare your fish anyway you like. This is not haute cuisine but simply really good food! Sit at the bar and enjoy your catch of the day.
