Gone but not lost

If you went looking for the market in Orihuela yesterday in its usual place then you would have been disappointed. It has now moved to the Recinto Ferial (the fairgound) on the Huerta.

Its old location wasn’t ideal. As the market grew it became too crowded in the narrow streets. There is a lot more space at the fairground. Not only that but there is also space to park your car and public toilets nearby.

Getting to the new location isn’t a problem because a bus runs every fifteen minutes from the Glorieta Gabriel Miró and finding your way by car looks easy.


Any change is bound to bring a certain amount of disruption. It will take shoppers a little while to find their favourite stalls and some of the stallholders will complain about having a less favourable location than others. Given time, it will all settle down and people will accept the change as if it had always been that way.
