Market opening pushed back

Market opening pushed back

ESTEPONA’S new gourmet market was planned to open before Christmas, but now, unforeseen archaeological work has pushed the grand opening into next year.

The works began in March and only recently has it been discovered that a new excavation will be required on Calle Villa.

Due to the proximity of the clock tower – declared of Cultural Interest (BIC) – to the excavation, it has been necessary to write a new archaeological plan.

Together with these delays, changes have also been made to the original plans – the developer has decided the entire market will be covered.

The building will be covered with glass to allow shoppers to enjoy the views of the castle.
The market will also benefit from air-conditioning.

These changes bring the budget for the works from €600,000 to just under €1 million.
The new gourmet market will be located in the old town, with a total of 28 stalls distributed across two floors – offering local, regional and national produce.
