The councillor for Markets at the Mijas Town Hall, Verónica Ensberg (PSOE), reported the return to activity of the sector this week. “From the department we have been working so that the markets can restart their activity with all the guarantees of safety and hygiene”, assured the councillor. Ensberg pointed out that the outer perimeter of the areas enabled to carry out this activity, as well as the distance between the stalls and the clientele, will be fenced in: “the capacity will be limited and controlled by the inspection of markets and agents of the local police. In addition, each of the venues will also be washed and disinfected before and after the activity. It will also be mandatory for vendors to wear masks and gloves, in addition to having hydroalcoholic gels available”. The street markets will return at their usual times and days of the week, and they will have a preferential timetable for senior citizens over 65 years of age established from 10 to 11 in the morning in order for this group to avoid queuing. “After having spoken with the Association of Street Vendors and with each of the vendors, all the markets in the municipality restart their activity with normality”, stated councillor Ensberg.


The market in Las Lagunas, situated in the San Rafael Industrial Estate, will be fully set up, while the market in Calypso will do so at 25% of its normal capacity.


The Municipal Market established the necessary security measures, in order to be able to continue with its commercial activity, signposting the entire area, regulating access to the area and attending to a maximum of one person at a time in each stall.


Since last Wednesday, May 20th, the Artisan Market in Mijas Pueblo returns every week. Also starting now are the ecological markets on the boulevard in La Cala (third Sunday of each month) and the market in the Andalucía Park in Las Lagunas (second Sundays each month). These markets will be open to the public from 10 to 14 hours
