For more than two years, there is a lovely craft fair to be found on the sea side boulevard in the harbour area of Jávea, every Sunday morning from 11 am till 2 pm. Regular visitors know that here people who are looking for original hand crafted items can meet the men and women who make them. The regional craft association AMATA, who organizes the fair, is very strict in admitting only “Artesanía de Autor®”, that is to say: the authors of EVERYTHING that is on sale, have to be present in the stalls
Now also opening on Saturday mornings
Up till now, participants in the fair were mainly craft people from Jávea and de neighbouring villages. To offer those who live further away a better chance to sell and to guarantee the public more variety from one week to the next, it was decided to add an extra day to the fair.
From now on you can find the dozen or so stalls also on Saturdays, with the same time table: from 11 am till 2 or 3 pm. Some artesans will be there the whole weekend, others will come only on Saturday or Sunday.
Find the fair on Google Maps
Now you have no excuse for not knowing where the market is, because it is now shown in Google Maps. The direct link is https://goo.gl/maps/rx5uWDjHiYs or you can look for “Feria de Artesanía Jávea”. Here you can also check opening hours and look at photographs and news about the fair.
Of course the weather is very important for the craft people, because they have to be sure that the rain or the wind doesn’t damage what they have made with so much care and love. So it might happen that one Saturday and/or Sunday, they can´t risk it and that is why they have created a page in Facebook, specially for this fair.
Up to date in Facebook
At https://www.facebook.com/feriaartesaniajavea/ they will publish every week (normally on Thursday or Friday) a list of which crafts will be present on the next Saturday and/or Sunday.
