However, Alaior, Cala Galdana, Ferreries, Calan Porter, Es Mercadal, and Santa Tomas also have attractive markets. In addition, you can rent a car at Menorca airport in Mahon and quench your shopping splurge in a day.
Let's dig deeper into Menorca's popular markets for shopping.
Shopping in Mahon
Mahon is the island's capital city and has been since the 17th century. The island's only international airport is in Mahon, and no matter which town or destination you choose, you will have to pass through Mahon. Shopping is a visual treat in the city as hundreds of small boutique shops in the upmarket sell various art and crafts.
Placa Esplanada and Placa Baixamar, two tourists' favorite markets, stay open for shopping during the weekdays.
You can also buy fresh fish and unique delicacies from the Mercado de Pescado fish market from Tuesdays to Fridays and paella, seafood from the local cafes, and chic ham from the stalls.
A special mention to La Ventana Gourmet, one of the popular stores in Mahon where you can buy national products unique to the island of Menorca or Spain. If you are an international traveler, don't forget to try meat delicacies, cheese, dried fruits, and nuts. The store also sells canned olives, rare balms, seafood, handmade pasta, several types of locally produced vinegar, and a large section of fresh homestyle bakes and pastries. They make perfect souvenirs to carry back home.

Shopping in Ciutadella
Ciutadella is the former capital of Menorca, located at the westernmost section of the island. The culture is quite quaint with Moorish architecture, a stark contrast to Mahon's urbanized shopping centers. You will find many local artisans set up beautiful shops at Friday and Saturday during the weekends, retailing the best handmade products you will ever come across.
You can buy handicrafts at the summer market in Carrer de Perre Caplloncan from evening 10 PM to midnight.
However, the most unusual store in Ciutadella is Simply Menorca, located inside a historic building featuring eccentric design. The shop sells only original men's and women's garments, which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Shopping in Es Mercadal
Es Mercadal is home to some of the best pastries in Spain, like Ensaimadas, Amargos, and Carquinyols. If you like food, you will find plenty of stalls selling fresh food and produce at local shops. The town also hosts many lovely cafes and bars for tourists. So, if you get thirsty between shopping, use our rental car in Menorca and visit one of the bars.

Shopping at Castillo
Castillo is one of the largest shopping centers in Menorca, which promises a great shopping experience and offers wholesome entertainment. You will find everything here: classic garments, unique jewelry stores, shoe stalls, gift shops, and goodies.
After shopping, you can drive up to the water park or the landscape garden using a cheap car hire service in Menorca and enjoy the beautiful weather. There's also an amusement park and go-kart center nearby for a quick recluse.

Hopping from one shopping market to another with a reliable car rental in Menorca is the best way to explore the shops. In addition, the island has many art galleries where unusual souvenirs are sold to tourists.
Most shops in Menorca are open Monday through Saturday. While there are certain exceptions, most local markets and stalls open from 9:00 to 13:30 and again from 17:00 to 20:30. Many restaurants provide service until midnight. Stores near the beach remain open throughout the day to attract more customers.
