Once Upon a Time Ibiza

Set your stall out....

With the season now getting into full swing, we see the welcome return of one of Ibiza's most original markets, Once Upon a Time Ibiza. Taking place in the grounds of the super stylish Hostal Boutique Salinas, the market will be showcasing its original and authentic wares at its next event this Saturday 30 May from 3pm.

The market takes place around every two weeks at the Hostal, which itself is set amidst the natural beauty of the Salinas nature reserve. We visited the market last year where we saw that the aim of the event is to showcase the work of local artists, craftsmen and designers for which Ibiza is well known. Many of these are from all over the world as well as the island: Italy, France, Germany and the UK are represented as well as more faraway places like Thailand. This rich mix of people bring some wide-ranging influences from a melting pot of cultures to the goods on display.


Three partners, Daniela, Luciano and Luana are the people behind the event: their desire has always been to present an alternative to other markets on the island. For these founders, it is more fashion event and meeting point where exhibitors can share ideas as well as sell their goods to visitors. They also wanted the market to represent the crossroads of cultures that exist on Ibiza, related via their events where “art music and fashion come together.”

Many of the exhibitors have been with this market since day one and are mainly independent brands. Stallholders you can expect to see include: Rebelot Clothing, a sexy and glamourous female line of clothing; Hyde Fast, street wear for both sexes; Toto Artwear, a high-end bikini collection; and for this Saturday, Pi, an artist that paints different parts of Ibiza on silk.

New for this summer will be a beauty corner presented by Giulia Vanucci which will offer massage and manicure. Lara Repetto Lavin is another new more mystical feature, who will be offering palm reading, tarot and holistic consultations. There will also be fashion shows coming up through the summer in collaboration with two Ibiza boutiques, The Soup and Le Studio.

Once Upon a Time Ibiza features music from local and international DJs: this Saturday you'll hear tunes from Dam Paul and Alaintv; plus there is a changing line-up throughout the season. There's also an all day barbecue, tasty tapas and great bar team on hand offering delicious cocktails. Do check out the Facebook page for specific event details and stay tuned to learn what will be coming up.
