The Basics

Inca Market attracts droves of tourists—especially in summer—and locals with its well-priced goods displayed in stalls spread around Inca’s historical streets and squares. Shop stands specializing in locally made leatherware: Expect chunky bags, purses, and shoes from Inca’s famous Camper, a brand produced in town. Other goodies include textiles, jewelry, ceramics, and fresh and gourmet foods.

While you can travel to the market independently, it pays to visit on a tour that includes convenient round-trip transport. In summer, market tours run from Palma, along with resorts such as Alcudia and Magaluf. All tours provide free time to explore and some add a wine-tasting at one of Inca’s wine cellars. Other options include full-day, island-wide tours that stop in Inca to allow you to browse its leatherware outlets.
