The Hippy Market of Ibiza
Joan Marí Juan opened the bar Las Dalias in 1954, coinciding with the fiestas for Sant Carles de Peralta (Santa Eulŕria des Riu).
In the first years, the activity of the premises varied from grand fiestas to tourist barbecues and various shows.
In the eighties, Joan Marí's son, known by his friends as "Juanito", took over the running of the bar.
At this time the garden was refurbished and the Mercadillo Hippy (hippy market) was created, and is one of the most important of the island.
The Hippy Market, together with different external factors, such as the creation of the prestigious recording studio, Estudios Mediterráneo,
in the neighbouring Sant Joan, attracted a long list of well known artists to Las Dalias, including Nina Hagen,
Mike Oldfield or Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones, amongst others. The Sala became the centre of Rock & Roll, marking the history of the area.
After the eighties, the musical activity descended and the Hippy Market was promoted, with the creation of the Christmas Market and the organisation
of different exhibitions and antique auctions.
At present the Canadian ex muscian, Chris González, runs the bar, and he has renovated the musical program of the Sala with concerts by local groups
and from all over Spain.
The Hippy Market of Ibiza, a compulsory visit by the artisans of the island, opens every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. from April to October.
It is one of the main attractions for Sant Carles de Peralta and continues to be frequented by famous artists who visit Las Dalias to acquire original
artisan products of a high quality or simply to spend a pleasant day surrounded by nature and enjoying the Ibizan cuisine and natural fruit juices
that are made in the garden.
