In Ibiza, on Saturdays, you go to Las Dalias market. After an early lovely breakfast on our terrace we headed to San Carles, where the market takes place. We really recommend to be there before 11 a.m. otherwise you will find a huge and annoying traffic jam. Besides, it gets really crowded and the market is not that big, so it’s better to be an early-riser!
Even though most of the products and pieces on sale are not exactly our style, we bought loved lots of things, mostly presents for our friends. We would recommend Agat Carmon for jewellery, Miky Goikoetxea for ceramics and Belinda for the most amazing fabrics, cashmere scarves, quilts and bedspreads.
The atmosphere at Las Dalias is absolutely special and the artisans and sellers have a strong personality. Even though the market is quite pricey (and don’t fool yourself, you will buy something), it absolutely deserves a visit. It’s fun, it’s original and it’s the quintessence of Ibiza.
After our little shopping spree, we enjoyed a couple of drinks in one of the market’s bars. Mine was a beyond delicious fresh fruit juice and hers was… a Mojito. Ehem, we were on holidays, you are supposed to have cocktails whenever you want, right?
