By request, I have introduced this category to highlight some interesting possibilities on Mallorca for people who like their food and drink. Enjoy!
Fira de s’Oliva
Olives and olive-related products are the stars of this two-day traditional fair in the village of Caimari, in the foothills of the mountains, not far from Inca. This usually takes place around the third weekend of November.
Fira de la Mel
If you love spreading a bit of artisan honey on your breakfast toast, or fancy keeping bees, don’t miss this one-day fair in the village of Llubí, usually the third weekend of November.
Fira de l’Esclata-Sang i de la Muntanya
The mountain village of Mancor del Vall (not to be confused with Manacor) hosts this one-day fair in late November, celebrating the tasty mushroom known as the esclata-sang.
Fira de l’Arròs Pobler
Rice is grown in the Sa Pobla area and the crop is celebrated at this two-day event at the end of each November. Love rice dishes? Sa Pobla is the place to be this particular weekend …
Live music at Lorien
On the last Wednesday of each month there’s usually live music at the great little back-alley bar Lorien in Palma, which has been offering an enormous choice of local and international artisan beers to its customers for 27 years (in 2017).
Live music with dinner at Santosha
Santosha in Palma is now serving dinner on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights – and there’s live music to accompany the tasty home-made food on Saturday nights.
Japanese nights at El Palau café in Manacor – Fridays
Read all about these great nights here. Be warned: they’re usually sold out.
