just joined. I am interested in moving to Spain within the next year with my 2 sons and husband.

I would like to know, is it possible to buy or rent a piece of land in Spain, to hold car boot or antique fairs on on a regular basis for income purposes?

Does anyone know and are there any laws governing what land may be used for?

any info, help, advice, welcome

thanks for your speedy reply. No I mean as we have in UK, where you own or rent a parcel of land and charge people to trade and sell goods on the land for the day. Also charge the customer to park

See blow a copy of note from a web site for Andalucia

Markets (mercados) are a common sight in towns and villages throughout Andalucía, and are an essential part of Spanish life, largely unaffected by competition from supermarkets and hypermarkets. They are colourful, noisy and entertaining and an experience not to be missed, whether you plan to buy anything or not. Markets thrive throughout the province and are the centre of life in towns and villages. Some towns have markets on one or two days a week only (always the same days), while others have daily fruit and vegetable markets from Mondays to Saturday. In rural and coastal areas, market days are varied in local towns so they don't coincide. There are also Sunday markets in some towns and flea markets (or boot sales) in several of the coastal towns which are largely patronised by foreigners and a good place to pick up cheap second-hand English books, as well as household items. Aside from the latter, there are generally three kind of markets: indoor markets, permanent street markets and traveling open-air street markets that move from neighbourhood to neighbourhood on different days of the week or month. There's often a large central market in the cities and many towns and neighbourhoods of large cities have indoor covered markets.

So you are not the first

I suspect you just have to find a land owner and then agree a deal with him

For the Law see a Spanish lawyer but I suspect that you will only have similar problems as you would in UK

If it is to be your main source of income then you should do some research on the ground

The service we offer only relates to buying and moving in to a new home in Spain but as part of that service we would make sure that you had contact to good legal advice in Spain so that you would know what you can and can not do Also advice on working in Spain,
