2. Punta Arabí
If you're searching for the best hippy market Ibiza has to offer, you probably won't get closer than this! In the heart of Santa Eulalia, the Ibiza hippy market Punta Arabí is a melting pot of all things Ibiza-culture. Every Wednesday for over three decades now, the small town has transformed from a sleepy fishing village into a metropolis of colour, creativity and verve. With over 500 stalls, everything you could want from an Ibiza hippy market is available here - clothing, souvenirs, arts and crafts, furniture, artworks, literature, music, food and much, much more...
3. Ibiza Port
The hippy market at Ibiza port comes alive every evening (from around late afternoon) to take over the winding cobbled streets of La Marina district. It's a less vivacious affair than the likes of the Punta Arabí hippy market but still well worth a visit.
4. Es Cubells
A rustic and charming little village, Es Cubells can be found in the far south west of the island of Ibiza. For hippy market directions to this small but wonderful handicraft market place, head to Sant Josep de sa Talaia and then it's a short drive to the south.
5. Las Dalias
Las Dalias comes alive every Saturday for a long day of hustle, bustle and bargain finding! Dates for this Ibiza hippy market are primarily May to October for the summer season, but it does operate all year round. Plus in the height of the tourist season there are extra dates on Monday and Tuesday evenings from 7pm. Take a look at the Ibiza hippy market map for directions and how to get there.
