AFTER more than a year, Vera’s Saturday market is returning to its traditional site.
The mercadillo has until now been held in Paseo Miguel Cervantes to comply with anti-Covid social distancing requirements, explained Vera’s mayor Jose Carmelo Jorge Blanco.
The town hall decided to take this step now that the health situation has improved throughout Spain and particularly in the Levante-Norte Health District to which Vera belongs.
“We have had countless requests from business associations in the Old Town for the weekly market to return to its habitual location,” Jorge continued.
“Moving the market to Paseo de Miguel de Cervantes had a very negative financial effect on Vera’s traditional shops in addition to the devastating consequences they had to endure during anti-Covid measures that included limiting opening hours and perimeter closures.”
