Formentera's art and craft markets prepare to start the new season with pre-pandemic normality

The Formentera Office of Commerce is pleased to report that Sunday 1 May, art and craft markets on the island will begin opening for the 2022 season. Activity begins in the markets of La Mola, Sant Francesc and Es Pujols on 1 May; the market in La Savina opens 16 May and the craft and art markets of Sant Ferran starts 28 May.

Ana Juan, President and Councillor of Commerce, hailed the return to normal and lifting of capacity restrictions at the markets in 2022, something she described as "good news for Formentera artisans, one of the many communities that needs for things to get back to normal; for islanders, who enjoy the markets too; and for tourists, who appreciate the markets as part of what makes Formentera unique".

For two years, COVID-19 restrictions prevented the normal functioning of the markets and the Consell de Formentera subsidised one hundred per cent of the fees that vendors pay to conduct business on public land under municipal jurisdiction.

Hours will be the same as before the pandemic:
