CUEVAS DEL ALMANZORA announced ambitious plans for improving the municipal market.

These will not only affect the market but also its privileged surroundings, town hall sources said.

These include the nearby Calguerin caves, buildings of cultural interest in Plaza de la Libertad and the Marques de Los Velez castle.

The market, built in 1998, currently has 23 food stalls, many of which sell locally grown produce. Despite its ideal position and quality meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, it continues to lose customers to the big supermarket chains.

With its plans to modernise and enlarge the market, making it more accessible for all members of public, the town hall’s Commerce department intends at the same time to win back customers to the market and other local shops.  

It also hopes to carry out the project with a €1.2 million subsidy from the central government’s Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan financed by the European Union.
