Thanks.

There are two markets close to Quesada and both are on Sundays.

El Zoco market is next to the roundabout on the motorway by the Masa cement factory.  From Quesada, take the second turn off at the roundabout (the first is for Alicante) and you will join the queue for the market car park straight away as it is, literally, right there.  Loads of parking (big area set for cars).  Open from 8:30 to 14:00 but some stalls aren't set up until after 9 or 9:30.

Lemon Tree market is on the way to Guardamar and is actually in Campo de Guardamar (Guardamar Field).  Parking is not so good and can take some time to get in and out but is more Spanish than the El Zoco one.  Not sure of the opening times but think they are similiar to El Zoco.  From Torrevieja, turn right at the roundabout signed Guardamar (the one after the La Mata Park roundabout) and head directly for Guardamar (watch out for speed traps as this road is notorious for them). It's about 6 km along that road and is, unusually, well sign posted.

The next village along, Rojales, has a Thursday morning market and is held near the centre of the town so park a bit out and walk in.

Thanks bobaol for the info. I'm new to ciudad quesada & I'm only interested in the ones within walking distance to/from ciudad quesada. I suppose of these markets, the one in Rojales is the one which I can walk to, am I right?

I've to explore round ciudad quesada all within walking distances.

Depends on where you are in Quesada.  You can walk to El Zoco (bit hairy crossing by the roundabout on the arches approach) and it has a footpath all along the side of the road to the market.   Just under 2 km once you are on the footpath.  Rojales is too far for me to walk but I regularly walk to El Zoco from near the Consum supermarket area.  Takes around half an hour there and half an hour back but I drive when I have lots of stuff to bring back.

Hi Forhotspot,

Yes we have walked to Rojales market from Formentera, you will be that bit nearer.  So I am sure you can do it. 

I believe there are buses that also go to the market's.

There is also a Tuesday market at Benijofar.  If you do a google of CIUDAD QUESADA it will come up with more information for you.

Pat

Hi forhotspot

I'm very biased, I adore the Campo de Guardamar market.  Biggest & best.

Actually Rojales Thursday market is at one end of town, not in the centre, & parking's reasonably easy we think. It's the opposite end to Benijofar & alongside the river. It's on hard standing & we find the fruit & veg a lot cheaper than ours.

The Benijofar market  was a one street affair when we went but we never went back so maybe it's diferent now.

Tracey, I can't find any map from your site. Anyway as Pat suggested I'll get my daughter to google ciudada quesada & get some info before we set off. I don't really know the exact location of my villa in quesada. All I know is 10 mins walk to the town center. The last time we were there, we're in a car & even now I can't visualize how to walk there from the villa. That's why I want to walk around the surrounding areas & at the same time visit the markets. 

Thanks More for the info.

 Hi Forhotspot.

Is this the first time you have been to the villa on your own steam?

Did Shaun help you with the purchase?  He will be able to help with directions if that is the case.

.Have a great time, take plenty of sun cream

Take care 

Pat

Thanks More for the map. This is what I'm looking for. 

Thanks Pat. Yes I bought this villa thru Shaun. We went over last year & I've just made my deposit. So hopefully they will start buiding it. I was shown round in a car . This Nov we will go over again & this time  I'm going to explore the area on foot so that I know exactly where  things are, by the time I move over next summer. I'm sure Shaun will help me directing me to the right places.

I've just sold my house in Canada. Can't believe that the house is sold in 9 days & I got to vacate the house by end of Sept..

There is a free bus service every thursday from Ciudad Quesada which will take you and bring you back from Rojales market where they sell everything from clothes, fresh fruit and veg and anything else you may be looking for. I will see if i can find out some sort of timetable and post it for you as a thread.

Thanks nyk1974. Is the free bus service a special bus or anyone can use it for free? The bus timetable will be useful when I move there.

I suppose no one knows the street name for Benijofar market. Is benijofar a small town where I can find the market easily?

Hi

It is a small town and the market is just off the main road through Benijofar.

Hope this helps

Geraldine

 Hi Forhotspot,

Do not know the name of the market we just walk there from Formentera, but if you are taking a taxi they will know where it is not far from the post room. There are a few cafe's and bars and it is of the main road. It is a small market just one street. We have one in Formentera on a Monday just a small market by the school.

Most taxi drivers will know the Rojales market as that is quite large.  If you do a google search that will probaly tell you.

Hope your villa is coming on.

Pat

Thanks Pat & Geraldine.

The reason I ask for a street name is that my brother will be driving & I'm sure he will use my daughter's gps. We hire a car for a wk on Nov 10th. I got to go over ASAP to choose the materials for my villa. They haven't started building it yet & I was told that they will complete within 8 mths. Hopefully I can move over in July 2010.
