Starting on 1 July, Amata is holding a small but choice craft market in Jávea (or Xàbia if you insist on valenciano) Port that seems to be working out quite nicely.
From 15 to 20 stalls set up each evening at 7 and continue till midnight, every day of the week. Everything is made by hand, made by the people on the stall, made with loving care and attention to detail. A little bit different from the endless hippy markets along the coast.
Amata, the regional craft association, selects participants very very carefully. Since none of the stall holders has enough stock for a whole season, they take it in turn to spend a day or two every week making new goods, and their place is taken by other people. So the market is never the same two days running – it’s more an outdoor gallery than a market.
Every evening till 15 September – except 17 to 21 July when Xábia Moros i Cristianos make whoopee and need that bit of the beach. If you want to find out more, phone 639 979 678 (English spoken) or look at www.amata.es which has an English section.
