Setting foot in Palma’s San Juan FoodMarket means yielding to its many diverse gastronomic temptations. The traders workingin this special place warn of how easy it is to succumb…yet have no regrets. Located in the spectacular,protected modernist building of S’Escorxador, this market is held in a laid-back area that coincides with the style of other great European food markets, such as those in Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, London and Rotterdam. Aside from its tasty offerings, the venue also provides a space for other events, such as Cooking4People.
Practical and vast, its long opening hours make it an ideal pit stop at any time of day. What’s more, as it is not on the tourist circuit, it is particularly interesting for those travellers who like to submerge themselves into the everyday lives of locals. In essence, whatever your guilty pleasure, you will find it in the San Juan Food Market: pintxos (Basque minibites) and tapas, cold meats, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Italian and Mallorcan food, on top of fish and seafood, meats and cocktails. You will have no choice but to give in to temptation.
