Mercat Vell

Ibiza Town

Fruit and vegetables have been traded at the elegant, columned neoclassical Mercat Vell since 1872. Today most of the produce, which includes olive oil and artisan bread, is locally sourced. Cafes, bars and restaurants fringe the market, which sits at the foot of Dalt Vila.
