Last Saturday the weekly craft market in Jávea started again, after a short Easter-holiday-break. One of the participants was Toni, who showed an interested public how the traditional turrón (soft nougat) is made with simple and very natural ingredients: almonds, raw sugar, cinnamon and lemon rind.
From now on and till the end of May, between 10 and 15 craftsmen and women set up their stalls every Saturday morning (10am till 2 pm) in the square in front of the Post Office near the old Town Centre (Plaza Marina Alta), to sell their pottery and ceramics, their lamps made of recycled wood or twisted wire, their paintings, wooden toys or hand painted T-shirts and bags, or their own designs in jewelry.
Every stall offers something different, all original items that you won’t find anywhere else. The craftsman or woman can explain how everything at his stall is made and they also accept special orders.
Some forty people participate in these fairs, taking turns so that every week there is something different to see. At http://www.amata.es/Javeasemanal.html you can see who is coming when and photographs of preceding weeks you can find at http://www.amata.es/JaveaSat15.html.
