amata javea femalefocusonline june24As of the 1st of June the Amata Art and Crafts Fair, which is held every Sunday morning in the Port of Jávea, extends its opening times to Saturday afternoons in the run up to the main summer fair.

As the days will be warmer and longer, they will open their stalls at 6pm in the afternoon and stay until 10pm or later. On Sunday mornings opening times stay the same: from 11am until 2pm.

Since 2013, craft association Amata, at the invitation of the port's shopkeepers' association, has held a summer fair on the sea side boulevard, with the guarantee that the participants only sell their own work. This year's summer fair, will be held from 28 June till 1

There is a wide choice in this small but select fair, since the organisers rigorously select the participants. This way there is always something for everyone's tastes: paintings and watercolours, papier-mâché and ceramic figures, leather bags, pyrography, amigurumis, clocks and bowls turned from wood with resin, and several stands with jewellery in different materials and styles.

Many artisans come almost every week, while others only come from time to time, but all are happy to accept special orders for collection the following week. The fair is indicated on Google maps ( and has its own Facebook page (
