As the population swells during summer in the resort towns many towns hold evening markets. The Ferreries evening marketing runs from mid June to mid August every Friday evening from around 19:00 to 23:30. With a farmers market on Saturday mornings from around 09:00 to 13:00.
Within the town you’ll also find a few local shops with hand made jewelry and goods.
First of all the festival is held annually on the 23-24th August. Fiesta of Sant Bartomeu in Ferreries.
‘Fiestas’ or Festivals are a large part of Spanish culture, as well as Menorcan culture. An amazing festival with over 100 primed and prepared horses and riders parade through the old city streets of Ferreries.
A huge part of the festival is when the horses parade and perform cargols. When riders circle specific points and the jaleos. Jaleos are when horses rear up on their back legs, Jaleo – young brave men, vying for good luck attempt to touch the horses hearts as they rear up.
A traditional drink accompanies these Menorca fiesta, Pomada. Pomada’s are the local Menorcan Gin mixed with bitter lemonade, usually Fanta Lemon.
Be careful, small children can become scared by the large crowds, rearing horses and electricity in the air. The streets are packed and much busier than usual, therefore can be overwhelming to younger people. Everyone however, is in a great mood and hoping to have a good time.
Nightlife in Ferreries
Ferreries doesn’t offer much of a nightlife like many of the small Menorca towns. With a small variety of bars, cafes and restaurants.
However, during the Ferreries festival around the narrow streets you’ll notice many pop up bars in locals front rooms selling buckets of Pomada and the different Spanish beers. A lively atmosphere and completely different to the usual quiet and calm town.
