Mercadillo Marinero

Market by the sea

This weekend a little market has sprung up by the beach in Las Negras.

Pottery and incense

Colourful stalls are selling clothing, crafts, jewelry, accessories, pottery and plants.

Clothes for girls ….

…. and boys

The goods on sale reflect the image of Las Negras.


Went we visited yesterday evening the market was being well supported by the many holidaymakers  who are here now.

Indian stall

The market is open again today, Sunday. Visit it while you can.

Clothes and accessories

It was difficult to take photos in the late evening sunshine with its orange cast and long shadows but I think these pictures capture some of the colour and atmosphere.



About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
