Palma‘s Paseo Marítimo is to become home to an exciting addition to the Mallorcan capital’s gourmet and social scene: a new gastronomic market. Renowned chefs Tomeu Caldentey and Adrián Quetglas – both of whom have Michelin-starred restaurants on the island – were among those announcing the plans for Mercat 1930 at a media event on April 6th.
The new venue will be housed in the former Mediterráneo 1930 restaurant premises – alongside Tito’s nightclub; its concept follows a trend set by the Madrid’s Mercado de San Miguel in 2009.
Several other Spanish cities now have a gastronomic market and Mercat 1930 will be Palma’s second. One of its promoters – Fernando Castellanos – was involved in the development of the successful San Juan Gastronomic Market at S’Escorxador in June 2015.
Mercat 1930 is expected to open before the end of 2017 and will have a number of stands selling different types of cuisine. These culinary offerings will include paellas, deluxe hamburgers, grilled meats, seafood, vegetarian and vegan dishes. Bars will offer specialist beers, vermouth, and cocktails. In addition, the space will have a pop-up bodega and Zona Community Taller, to host events such as cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, and workshops.
Like San Juan Gastronomic Market, Mercat 1930 will have a striking Mediterranean look: wood, iron, and Mallorcan tiles are major elements of local interior designer Jorge Bibiloni’s plan for this new Palma gourmet project.
