One More Sleep til Market Time…


ELS DISSABTES AL MERCAT VELL PRESENTS: AIRES AÑEJOS

The sun is shining, the birds are singing and Spring is definitely in the Ibiza air – it can only mean one thing- it’s time for ‘Els Dissabtes al Mercat Vell’. For the third consecutive year under our charge, and in an initiative led by the Town Hall of Ibiza, we are simply delighted to let you know that this Saturday 25th Feb, from 11am-2pm in la Plaza del Mercat Vell de Vila, our favourite Saturday morning activity goes into full swing right there, in the middle of Ibiza’s World Heritage site.

This year, as well as our usual elements of live local music, kids activities, Es Juvert Artesania Market and the fruit, veg and flower market of the Mercat Vell itself, we’ve decided to bring Art into the equation with the added bonus of ‘El MercArt’.

Our plan is this- to turn La Plaza Sa Drassaneta into a space where our island artists can get together and show us their wares. From the famous to the emerging, we hope to bring you the best of what we’ve got in a World Heritage location like no other. Follow the arrows to the MercArt.. For our inauguration , Boke + Luchy show us what Action Painting is all about, get to the Plaza for 1pm!

ARTISTS CONFIRMED: *BOKE & LUCHY *BO WOODY WINTER *DIEGO PIKABEA *MARTA TORRASSA *JOLEEN EIDE-JOHANSEN *LA SKIMAL *LAIA DOMINGO..*AuFeGar… To participate, contact us here at FiX ibiza on 645909098

ELS DISSABTES AL MERCAT NOU PRESENTS: AIRES FRESCOS

But lets not forget about the New Market! For that particular shopping zone of Vila, we’re bringing along the students of Ibiza’s Music and Dance Conservatorio. Over the month of March, prick up your finely tuned ears and get ready to be enthralled by the Saxo Cuartet and the Conservatio Jazz Band, not to mention a little light Chamber Music (with Strings)…. Meanwhile, taking over the streets with their acrobatic ways, Acrobati-K doing their thing.

Music for shopping, music by future maestros.

The three events at the Mercat Nou also take place on Saturday mornings, from 11am-2pm.

    What a great initiative!! Markets are one of the greatest events to see while on vacation. You really get to soak in the flavour and spirit of the people and their customs. This market sounds particularly complete and with a varied selection of activities! Sounds like fun!

      thanks for the positive comments! we are certainly trying to cover all bases and make sure there really is something for everyone.
      Tomorrow, and we are simply smirking with glee as we present the Conservatori de Musica i Dansa Jazz Band with Adolfo Villalonga Juan at the reins; they’ll have you dancing through the fruit and veg in no time. As for Acrobati-k, get ready for more hilarity on stilts from Carol Brest and co. taking Shopping with Mama to a whole new level. Action from 11pm- 1.30pm..
