The fortnightly market in Albufeira reopens next Tuesday, June 16, with a strict contingency plan that is based on access control, maintenance of sanitary rules imposed by the Directorate-General for Health and procedures for containerization and packaging of waste.
The Albufeira City Council announced that starting next Tuesday, June 16, regular visitors to the fortnightly market in Albufeira will be able to go shopping, now with other precautions but with all the security measures implemented to avoid the spread of the virus. The Market will take place at the usual site, in Caliços, on Estrada de Vale Pedras, on the first and third Tuesday of each month, from 8:30, am to 2:00 pm.
Rules were defined, both for marketers and consumers, in a work that is being carried out by various services of the Municipality, in collaboration with the Voluntary Firefighters of Albufeira, GNR and Local Health Authority. The articulation with DGS is guaranteed by the Municipal Civil Protection Service.
Access for consumers will be made next to the bus terminal and the secretariat of the Fair. People should queue outside the market, with a view to allowing counting by city officials, waiting for an indication to enter the premises. In addition, the use of a mask is mandatory, and all measures of social distance must be respected, namely avoiding a distance between people less than 2 meters, as well as the instructions given by security officers and municipal officials, who may, in a high concentration of people inside or non-compliance with the rules, choose to ask customers to leave the place or for the enclosure itself to close.
Despite all the security measures, the Albufeira City Council recommends that people from vulnerable groups do not visit the space.
