Same reason as last week. The traders don't want the new venue.

Personally I'm very pleased the market didn't take place. But how long can the market traders afford to keep up their stance? Will the council back down??

Even if the traders give it a go & show the council that it doesn't work / not enough people go, what then.....?

No market in Nerja? Is that what the council really want?

Stranger things have happened but I don't think the Council will back down. They have been totally steadfast in their intentions so far and I can't see them changing their minds.

The new municipal ordinance gives them the power to revoke the licences of traders if they do not set up within 3 weeks, which is next week I believe.

The Council certainly wants a golf course and a marina, apart from that I don't think they are particularly bothered, or so it seems.

One gets the distinct impression that if the market goes ahead, fine, if the market falls by the wayside, also fine. It's not a municipal money-spinner, it's not an 'image' item like a golf course, it doesn't attract tourists with big wallets.

We'll just have to wait and see what happens. More likely the traders will back down when they realise it's a case of 'there, or nowhere'.

No, it's in the Almijara area, which is further out of the centre.

On the map of Nerja at www.soltalk.com, it's in square B8.
