For the 16th time, the residents of Alaró (and probably some outsiders as well…) move out into the streets to sell their various knick knacks. There is a whole lot of food but also arts and crafts for kids as well as adults. It is a party that stretches throughout the day and into the night.
Produce of all kind was for sale, the Mallorquins love their grub and I must admit it was difficult to choose from all the goodies displayed in long rows along the narrow streets.
As usual cupcakes were high in demand. There were at least 5-6 stalls selling the lovely muffins.
This one was particularly interesting as every cake had a plastic tube with gin attached to it. Some liked to squirt it into the muffin while others simply sucked the little bugger dry…
…and then some cheese…
…and herbs displayed artfully in an ancient pram.
This is the day when the people of Alaró get to sell the stuff that they have produced in the past year. This guy makes his own beer.
These guys make their own body products, all with natural and organic ingredients. I bought a couple of nice body lotions that supposedly scare off mosquitoes and other bugs that just love to bite me!
For sale: pretty witches for all occasions? You can spot the artist in the background, she looks slightly witchy to me…
And – of course – what is a fiesta without some musical entertainment?
For sale: 1 € a piece.
There was a whole lot of jewelry for sale. This couple probably spent a big part of the winter crafting their stuff. Or, at least she did whilst he kept her entertained with sweet music.
Their child seemed to have an artistic touch as well.
As usual the Alaró giants were brought out. They always get to see the daylight when there are festivities going on. Both small…
At Ecosenalla they had a slight problem with their giant paella. Perhaps they ran out of gas?
Massive hoards of people showed up for the popular market. Great fun!
But not everyone was up for using their own legs.
