I’m not much of a market person. I’m not much of a browser or a bargain hunter, or a shopper at all in fact and then throw in a crowd and you can’t see me for dust. So ‘El Jueves’ market on Calle Feria hasn’t really held much draw for me in the five years I’ve lived here. But, it is a photographer’s dream, regardless of your view on second hand markets.
Every Thursday from 7am – 3pm Calle Feria is blocked off from Castellar to Correduría in order to host the oldest street market in Seville (dating back to the XIII) with a plethora of antiques, religious artefacts, second hand clothes and a high quota of tat. Visually it rates pretty high on the kitchometer, which is always a personal joy.
So here´s a little visual feel of a typical day of ´El Jueves´ (from a Guiri´s eye view).
