Discover the top Ibiza local produce
Agriculture is a traditional mainstay of the Ibizan economy. Crops such as citrus fruits, almonds, olives and other soft fruits like apricots and grapes have been grown here for centuries.
Being an island, seafood is obviously a big part of the Ibizan diet with many typical dishes based on fish or crustaceans, mainly lobster, sourced locally. Pork has also long been a central part of the Ibizan table and the island's own sobrassada sausage is a delicious and unique spicy paste.
Other important local products are traditional Mediterranean staples such as olives, with which islanders make fragrant olive oil; almonds, which are the main ingredient of the Salsa de Nadal - a Christmas dessert; grapes for the protected 'Vino de la Tierra de Ibiza' wine; and salt which has been collected on the White Isle for centuries.
If you want the best regional produce, then look for the tag 'Sabors d'Eivissa' , an official indication which designates locally sourced produce of high quality. Currently, you can find it on sobrassada, lobster, rockfish, red prawns and crayfish.
