Inca is the third largest town in Mallorca and is located in the heart of the island. The town is famous for its leather products and the weekly Inca market, which takes place every Thursday and attracts visitors from far and wide.
They say that the best way to get to know the island is through its traditions and local products, if that’s the case then Inca is all about the market, leather, wine, Quely biscuits and some of the best Ensaimada on the island.
A combined visit to Inca market and the old Leather Factory store is recommended to make the most of your visit inland.
The brand ‘Camper’ famous for footwear began life in Inca and you can visit the Camper Outlet Village and Factory when you are there. You’ll find lots of bargains in a wide range of styles for men, women and children.
The market is the biggest open air market in Mallorca and is held on the streets in the town centre from 8am to 1pm. It’s a colourful, vibrant and lively experience with hundreds of stalls and to make the most of it, you should put aside a few hours of your time.
There’s an abundance of leather goods for sale ranging from jackets to bags to shoes; however there is also a wide variety of other products for sale such as local crafts, textiles and fruit & vegetables.
Prices on the stalls are set; however the traders love to haggle, there’s some great deals to be made especially if you get there early in the morning.
Inca is mostly a residential town, full of native Mallorcans living alongside a small expat community and has excellent public transport links with the rest of the island.
