the farm - to - table movement in ibiza
Beyond the sun-soaked shores and bustling clubs, Ibiza boasts another hidden treasure that’s equally captivating – its local produce and vegetables. Early spring is perfect time to indulge in some real dining made from ‘km cero’ local produce!
After the long winter days, enjoying a healthy Mediterranean meal under the sun feels like renewal embrace from nature itself. Well, Ibiza itself has embraced the farm-to-table concept long before it became a global trend. Whether you’re dining in a traditional “chiringuito” (beachside shack) or any town or countryside restaurant, you’ll taste the essence of the island in every bite.
Also many local markets proudly showcase locally sourced produce, ensuring the freshest supply for the island’s foodie community.

The popular Pincho (or pintxo) Festival that, attention here, lasts for a few months, starting up from March. It is called Pintxa Sant Antoni, since it takes place in San Antonio where around 30 bars and restaurants offer their wide selection of delicious, typical- Spanish pinchos and tapas for all tastes and a variety of shapes and compositions on a very reasonable price.
The dynamics here are simple, just remember: eat and repeat! Go to a bar, order the pincho you fancy, enjoy it and move to the next bar. ‘ We call it The Pinxo Rute’
