Hi everyone

We are due to head back out to Matagorda in 3 weeks (can't wait!) for our annual holiday. The last few years, we took the Last Minute Tours trip to the Wednesday market in Playa Blanca. While we enjoyed browsing the market, it was also nice to visit Playa Blanca and have our lunch out somewhere different. The bus made two stops - first at the Marina Rubicon for the market, and then drove to the other side of the harbour (where the ferries dock).

Last year (in July), we took the trip as normal, but the market seemed so much bigger with lots more stalls at the second bus stop as well. I assumed that the market had expanded but when friends of ours went the following Wednesday, the market had returned to it's normal size.

Does anyone know if there is a particular date in July when the market has extra stalls?

Hi
There are no particular fixed dates as such...it often happens that there is some local fiesta or similar on and if these occur on market days then ocassionally ( and not in every case) the Ayuntamiento (council) will arrange for extra stalls to be erected, in the town itself, during that day(s).....it often happens when the fair is in town...usually the 2nd and 3 rd week of August....but as with all things Spanish, very little notice or publicity is given ...best to check the Ayuntamientos website ( as long as you can read Spanish) on http://www.playablancaturismo.com/

Thanks for that. Google translated them very well. Nothing listed for July yet. The Winerun this month seems to be the next big thing.
