Once Upon A Time In Ibiza returns to Es Caliu on January 20 for its Love Market, a gathering dedicated to love and solidarity, what better note to start the New Year on! After the success of the Christmas Market, which saw people drop in from all over the island, Love Market gives an early opportunity to visit with Ibiza friends, to soak up the positive vibes and pick up a bargain while you do so.

It’s the perfect time to renew old acquaintances, not to mention making new ones. Ibiza is still in winter mode, dancing to a completely different beat, giving all of us some rare free time to explore the island and reinforce why we chose to live here. Catching up with friends is one of our favourite past times, it’s too easy to become insular in the heat of the summer battle where spare time is a very rare commodity. The Love Market is a fun day out for all the family; from the buzz of browsing the stalls to enjoying the DJ sets, live music from local talent, churros and chocolate for those of you with a sweet tooth, Tarot reading, astrology and there’s a special area for the kids.

Es Caliu is the ideal spot for the market, having proved that previously just before Christmas. Its enchanted garden is one of the focal points of the charming eatery and the perfect spot for the market. The 200-year-old building has a stack of stories to tell, offering an authentic experience any time you visit. With many of the ingredients on its mouth-watering menu coming from its ecological garden, not only is the food fresh and delicious but it offers a chance to sample some traditional Ibizan dishes. Make a day of it on January 20 and book a table for lunch and turn a unique retail opportunity into a gastronomical adventure.
