THE local market, in the north of Estepona town, will be moved while the authorities create a new leisure area.

When the new area is completed it will boast some 70,000 m2 with improved facilities for the market; the annual ferias; as well as multipurpose sports pitches for local residents to enjoy all-year-round.

In the mean-time, the Wednesday market will be held at Avenida Puerta del Mar.
