The location: Rua Lusotur. http://goo.gl/maps/0bRf0

There will be a variety of stalls and a series of activities including cooking sessions with chefs from Vilamoura’s hotels preparing and presenting food, puppet shows, dances, face painting, etc. Loads of entertainment and surprises.

Yes, they are a monthly affair but so far it has not been all year around.

I remember you were here in October; did you have better luck with the taxis?

Yes indeed, it's the square next to the Spar supermarket. You'll see the stalls have red/white striped shades.

I also got some fresh Raspberries, Blueberries and Strawberries and handmade biscuits.

Thank you for the info on it FTHW, I was delighted to go to it.
