Mahon’s Fish Market

Fish Markets are always worth visiting whether in Bolton, Bury, Mallorca or Mahon. We arrived at an odd time because the fish stalls were closing as the wine and tapas stalls were just opening. The expected “buzz” was somewhat less than we expected and I wondered if this might be the first fish market to disappoint.

I shouldn’t have worried – we should have visited earlier or later or better still earlier and later. Wandering back up from the port we heard lively and very slightly familiar music coming from somewhere nearby that turned out to be the Fish Market. The party was in full swing – what a wonderful way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon!

For a taste of what they are dancing to try:

Volare or Bamboleo by the Gipsy Kings
