Stay safe round the markets

Wear a bag that is hard for thieves to put their hand into.

Don't keep valuables in your back pockets.

Always keep an eye on your bag, if you stop for a coffee and don’t leave your phone or purse on a table top.

Carry very little cash, yes of course you may need another pair of shoes and breakfast and a coffee or whatever but carry as little as possible, separate it between you if you are a couple.

Always be aware of what is going on around you

DO NOT have anything to do with the Pea/Potato men

Hi Steve, your first port of call with be to have a chat with the market inspector (manager). There will be a waiting list or you may be asked to turn up early and queue and see if you get on, some days you may others not it all depends what you are selling. You will need to have all the correct paperwork ie for yourself and be autonomos (self employed). The market inspector will tell you exactly what is required as all areas differ. Hope this helps. I spent many happy years doing markets but not in this area. so good luck.

Just had a wander round what I call 'the other wednesday outdoor market'. This one is just behind the Terralta apartments on the outside of the old town. I have no idea what it is called but I believe it is sited on a sports field? It is a lot more 'Spanish' than the one in the new town with very few touristy stalls doing the usual souvenirs. Quite a few fresh fruit and veg stalls and lots of clothes stalls. Hot chickens etc. on sale with a couple of sit down cafes. Word of warning though, shin guards are recommended due to the Spanish granny, shopping trolley and robust attempts to get through any gaps bigger than 6 inches wide. ?
