November Fairs in Mallorca

There is always a great deal of gastronomic events going on in Mallorca, and November is no exception. In fact, it is probably one of the busiest months as far as markets are concerned.

We have already had the famous Dijous Bo in Inca, and the Olive Fair in Caimari, and the Honey Fair in Llubi, and coming up soon is the Mushroom Fair which takes place in Mancor del Vall (28th of November this year). The mushroom fair is really held in honour of the Esclatasang mushroom, a local Balearic variety, and you will also find a lot of mushroom themed menus at Mallorca Restaurants this time of year.

Also still to look forward to this month is the Rice Fair being held in Sa Pobla. This fair is being held in honour of Rice Production in Mallorca and features special deals and menus featuring delicious rice dishes in the village.
