Definitely spend a few hours at one of Ibiza’s famous hippy markets when you’re holidaying on the island. These are the best hippy markets on the island.

Las Dalias Hippy Market (Sant Carles)

Las Dalias is open on Saturdays all year round. The first edition in 1985 had five stalls; now, there are easily 200 stalls. That obviously attracts a lot of visitors, especially between 11 am and 2 pm. If you can, try to avoid those times. Park your car on the other side of the road for € 3,50 and spend the rest of your money on, well, basically anything.

Las Dalias is an extensive hippy market where you’ll find everything from jewelry to paintings, from homemade honey to dream catchers. There are also several stands to grab a bite or drink and do a bit of people-watching. Or maybe you want to have your hand read or have tarot cards laid out?

In high season, from June to September, there is a night market at Las Dalias on Mondays and Tuesdays. From 7 pm you can marvel at all the trinkets.

Punta Arabí hippy market (Es Canar)

Punta Arabí is by far the largest hippy market in Ibiza. On Wednesdays (April to October), more than 500 sellers set up their booths to tempt you to buy their goods. Punta Arabi was founded (1973) when the management of Hotel Club Punta Arabi let the hippies sell their products there. So it has grown considerably since.

There are also more than enough food and drink options at this hippy market. In high season, it gets swamped here. So mentally prepare for the crowds.

Flea market in the Hipódromo (Sant Jordi)

Officially this is not a hippy market but a flea market. But secretly, I like this market much more than the “official” hippy markets. The hippy markets are a bit too busy for me, and I have more space and freedom of movement on the former Hipódromo racecourse.

On Saturdays, people sell their junk and gems from a rug or from the trunk. Due to this laid-back, almost effortless setup, it is clear to see that this site was once a racecourse. Mercadillo Sant Jordi is really very basic in that respect, but that’s precisely why I love it so much.

Mercat de Forada (San Rafael)

On Saturdays, you can do some real, local shopping on the site next to Can Tixedo. Mercat de Forada is a small-scale market, usually no more than ten stalls, where you can buy local products. From cheese and plants to beautiful jewelry. Mercat de Forada has not (yet) been discovered by the general public, and that is its charm.
