Today will see the return of the weekly, Friday Market held on Plaza de Blas Infante in Almuñécar, now that the fiestas are over.
The Public Works Department at the Almuñécar Town Hall has been eliminating architectural barriers around town (obstacles for those with mobility problems).
The Almuñécar police moved in during the Friday Market this week to confiscate a dozen pieces of illegal ivory. The stall owner could not demonstrate that he had obtained them legally.
For the second year running, Almuñécar will be hosting the Concurso Nacional Canino and the Exposición Nacional Canina.
The chief opposition party in Almuñécar has denounced that the trees on the Friday-market square are being drastically cut back/pruned in Spring.
There is a time to prune and a time when not to, and the basic guideline is do it whilst the plant is seasonally dormant. Hence the latest political squabble in Almuñécar.
Local businesses had been pressing the Policía Local and the Guardia Civil to do something about the amount of pirated goods (forgeries) at the Friday market.
