The not-so hidden organic markets of Ibiza

Posted by June 14, 2018TravelLifestyleIbizaIbiza Insiders

Back in the 90’s and early 00’s electronic house music and heavy baselines were perhaps the first image that sprung to mind  when thinking of Ibiza. In recent years however we’ve seen the island reinvent itself as a chic, foodie hub. With more and more sophisticated restaurants popping up every year, offering organic produce such as Aubergine and Wild Beets, it’s no surprise that the hidden organic farms of Ibiza supplying them have started to emerge too.

As we become more conscious about what we’re eating, Ibiza has seen many Bio and Organic shops cropping up  across the island, but actually Ibiza has always been a farming spot. With agriculture in abundance all over the small island, you’ll find wild asparagus, almond trees, lemon, orange and olive trees aplenty, as well as tomatoes, figs, carob and all manner of herbs growing in the wild – hence the typical Ibicencan liqueur ‘Hierbas’ chupitos offered at the end of every meal here (note – that’s a shot to you and I, and they’re lethal).

Of course Ibiza remains a party-goers paradise, however the hippy vibe has also always prevailed, providing fertile land for the farm-to-table movement.

Terra Masia farm hidden away in the heart of the countryside, selling organic produce direct from their on-farm market, has just launched their first farm-to-table supper events this summer. Their first event was on 7th June, and they’re set to announce more dates on their Instagram feed in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

“You can walk around the farm, see our organic gardens, fruit trees, flowers, take eggs, visit and feed the rabbits, ducks, turkeys, piglets, goats and chickens.”. They also offer an array of workshops, from bread or pizza making in Ibicencan stone ovens, to cheese or herb workshops. You can even go for a special breakfast served with 100% organic ingredients from the farm.
