Spokesperson for the company who are organising the event, José Miguel Benito , then detailed how there will be 53 merchants participating in the fair , of which 29 are of native to Orihuela . In total there will be 14 craft stalls, 9 with food, 7 offering cosmetics and personal care products and 11 more which fall into a category of “various”, offering such goods as minerals , furniture, lamps , ceramics , toys, crafts and the likes.
In addition to the market, on Saturday there will be a belly dance workshop for the whole family and, on Sunday, another workshop featuring “Biodanza”, which is described as a “human integration system of organic renewal, of affective re-education, and of relearning of Life’s original functions.

There will also be educational workshops for children, and therefore “It is a day for families and activities are for adults to come with children”, concluded Benito.
