Es Canutells Markets

Markets in Menorca provide the ideal place to purchase some original Menorcan products. In these picturesque, colourful and multi-ethnologic places you'll find nearly everything, from basic food produce to the ultimate fashion trend, all in a familiar relaxed atmosphere.

Most winter markets on the island are held in the morning, and summer ones in the evening, but whenever you visit you'll need to get there early and be prepared to haggle like a professional to secure the best bargains.

A couple of words of advice, do not start to negotiate if you have no intention of buying, but do not be afraid to say no and walk away if the prices do not fall to a level that you are prepared to pay for an item. Common sense we know, but still easy to forget.
