THE number of people selling bric-a-brac in Inca's Sunday flea market has doubled over the past few weeks, a development seen to be a reflection of the recession.

In August last year, there were only seven or eight stands at the market which is set up each week down Calle Puresa and in Plaza de sa Font, but the number of vendors has risen to 25. All manner of objects are on sale, discarded by their former owners. In spite of the swelling ranks of bric-a-brac stands, the fruit and vegetable stalls which are also set up on Sunday mornings in Plaza des Bestiar remain at 35 in number.

Market Councillor on Inca Town Council, Felip Jerez said yesterday: “Due to the building going on in Plaza des Bestiar, we've had to move the Sunday market along with the flea market to Calle Puresa, Plaza de la Font Vella and Calle Rentadors. By doing this, we've actually been able to accommodate more marketeers at a time when there has been rocketing increase in demand for a selling point.
