MORE than 100 stands can be seen at Baleart, the showcase for local arts and crafts which opens at the fairs precinct in the Polígono de Levante (near the GESA building) at 12 noon today.
The stands include 27 dedicated to food and drink, 15 to pottery, ten to art and ten to decoration. Other stands feature wrought iron, leather, glass, wood and footwear.
Various town councils as well as individual craftsmen have taken stands at the fair this year.
Although it has been confined to Balearic crafts in the past, this time, there will be five stands from other regions.
But it is more than a giant market.
Although the items are on sale, there will also be demonstrations of crafts, as well as workshops.
For example, there are on ceramics at 10.30am and 6.30pm on Saturday, tapestries on Sunday afternoon, woodwork, painting and carpentry.
The fair's director Eva Candela, said that Baleart marks the official presentation of all the products which will later be marketed at other fairs.
The fair will be open daily from 11am to 9pm until December 12 and there is a small admission charge of three euros.
