The Punta Arabi Hippy Market is one of the longest running of the Ibiza markets, celebrating its 45 year anniversary in 2018 and offering visitors a taste of authentic Ibiza. The first market of this special year will take place on April 4 from 10.00 until 18.00. The market is still home to the original hippies, veterans of the early years, as well as a new breed of young craftsmen and women, given a platform to showcase their goods.

Wednesday April 4 is the first of many markets this summer as Punta Arabi Hippy Market continues the experience it has offered since the 1973. The combination of the creative talent of the island inhabitants with live music and delicious food has seen the market thrive for four and a half decades. The 2018 season launches with a live performance from 3GO at 13.30 in the multicultural tent and, at the same time, until 15.30, you can enjoy homemade paella on the terrace of the restaurant grill. There’s also a range of homemade craft beers and healthy smoothies to be enjoyed.

With 500 stalls of beautifully hand crafted goods, made lovingly by creative souls from all over the world, there is something for everyone at Punta Arabi Hippy Market – including unique fashion pieces, jewellery, leather, feathers and much more. It offers a chance to enjoy a slice of traditional Ibiza, with some of the men and women that were instrumental in the early years of the world famous market. It’s also a fantastic chance to grab a unique souvenir of your Ibiza adventure or a thoughtful gift for someone special. The multicultural tent will feature performances from bands from Spain, England and various parts of the world, adding an entertainment element to your afternoon of shopping. From May, there are activities and workshops for the little ones in the ‘Hippy Kids’ area, giving the adults the chance to browse the various stalls as the kids are being looked after. The hippy markets are one of the most talked about concepts on the island, what better way to experience the phenomenon than by visiting the original and most authentic.
