  Medieval Market in Yecla - One More Attraction In Interesting Fiestas
The ‘Fiestas de San Isidro’ in Yecla (Murcia) are well known in the area for the fantastic floats decorated with thousands and thousands of brightly colored paper flowers and for the Folklore Festival on the Sunday afternoon. This year the fiesta will have the extra attraction of an interesting medieval market with many demonstrations of old crafts and many stalls with original craft work. The fiestas of San Isidro start on Thursday, May 10th, at 9pm with part of the Folkore Festival, but the main activities are on the Friday evening, when the medieval market starts and on the Saturday and Sunday with a very interesting programme. On the Saturday morning the medieval market starts at 11am and round about that time all the floats start to get together in the same neighbourhood for inspection. They all participate in a ‘concurso’ - which float is the most original, the most colourful, the most beautiful?  Each float is designed and made by a different ‘peña;’ a group of people who have worked for months to make thousands of paper flowers and put them together to make life size images of people, animals and objects. The results are many fantastic, brightly coloured floats, that in the afternoon, at about 6 pm, will pass in procession through the streets, admired and applauded by the assembled crowds. The Sunday morning offers, apart from the medieval market, religious processions and in the afternoon, at about 6 pm, the second part of the Folklore Festival gets underway in which five or six different groups will participate in singing and dancing. This year the Town Hall wanted to add a special touch to the fiestas with a medieval market that starts on the Friday afternoon at 6pm and continues till the Sunday evening.  As the fiestas already offer lots of entertainment, the medieval market concentrates on demonstrations of old crafts: glass blowing, spinning of angora wool (from rabbits), weaving and wood cutting. Members of the public can have a go at paper making, at wood turning on a medieval lathe and at certain times they can even bake their own bread in the baker’s wood oven. As the medieval market is organised by the craft association Amata, people can be sure to find a wide choice of good quality hand made goods in the market, as well as plenty of opportunity to sit down and have a glass of traditional scrumpy or a nice plate of medieval food. Minstrels, jugglers, jesters, noblemen, beggars, and other medieval characters mingle with the crowd to build the right medieval atmosphere and the juggler closes the fair every evening with a fire show. The market is set up in the wide Avenida Pablo Ruiz Picasso (signposted from the main entrances of the town), in the same area where all other festive activities take place.  Opening times: Friday May 11th from 6 pm onwards, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th, from 11am till 2pm and from 5 -10pm or later.   Yecla lies about 80 kms due North of Murcia Town and can be easily reached from Villena on the N-330, the motorway Alicante-Madrid.  More information about the market, also in English, on 639 979 678.
