Artisan Market Mar Menor

On Sunday March 13th, in Santiago de la Ribera on the Esplanade Barnuevo, the Artisan Market Mar Menor had forty stalls selling traditional crafts. From 10am-2pm every second Sunday of each month, locals and foreign visitors can see genuine craftsmen doing demonstrations of their trades. The next market will be held on 10 April

The Regional Guild of Various Handicrafts and the Department of Crafts and Trade of San Javier bring the markets to the different municipalities in the region of Murcia. This gives this cultural-artisan association the opportunity to offer the public the chance to see them working their handmade craft which is a cultural heritage traditionally passed from parents to their children.
