Summer ( Craft, Artisan ) Markets
From mid June to September ( see below for local information) Menorca's summer markets can be found evenings in many towns and larger beach resorts. They invite you to wander. Mostly artensal, they also offer some individual toys for children but mostly something fashionable for the ladies and ( often handmade ) artistic souvenirs.
Es Castell - Every Tuesday in peak summer on Carrer Sant Josep ( the road down to the Harbour from the main Car Park by the Windmill ) A varierty of Artisan Crafts, Food and live Music. A great way to combine a visit to Cales fonts bars and restaurant - this is an ADDITIONAL market
Summer Markets - times
Some of the beach resport markets are smaller versions of travelling clothes/souvenirs = not so great - better ones have Handicraft stalls ( Artesano ) with dress accessories, hand made craft and Jewellery and are nearly always in the evenings. They are only in the peak summer period mid June to end of August/Mid September dependent on location.
The popular Ciutadella,Mahon and Es Castell evening markets are ( better ) more Artisan / Eclectic : featuring homemade foods, clothing, decorations and craft objects. Great to take in along with Cafe bars and musical events which often accompany them on warm summer evenings.
