Port craft fair extends its opening times

The stalls will be open on Saturday evenings throughout June.

From Saturday 1st June, the Art and Crafts Fair, which is held every Sunday morning in the Port of Jávea, will extend its opening times to Saturday afternoons. As the days become warmer and longer, the artisans will open their stalls at 6.00pm in the afternoon and stay until 10.00pm or later. On Sunday mornings opening times will stay the same, 11.00am till 2.00pm.

Since 2013, the AMATA craft association has held a summer fair on the port promenade with the guarantee that the participants only sell their own work. In October 2015, a weekend fair was added, as a parallel activity to La Mar de Tapas, and since 2018 the artisans of AMATA have offered their creations every Sunday morning to set up their stalls on the promenade. And now, in the month of June, they will also open on Saturday afternoons, as a precursor to this year’s summer fair, which will be held from 28 June till 1 September.

There is a wide choice in this small but select fair, since the organizers rigorously select the participants. This way there is always something for everyone’s tastes: paintings and watercolours, papier-mâché and ceramic figures, leather bags, pyrography, amigurumis, clocks and bowls turned from wood with resin, and several stands with jewelry in different materials and styles. Many artisans come almost every week, while others only come from time to time, but all are happy to accept special orders for collection the following week.
