On Wednesday, 2 December, two hundred stalls will open for Palma’s Christmas market and will spread from the Plaça Espanya to La Rambla and to the Plaça Major. All sorts of products will be available, such as craft-made items for nativity scenes - these will be available only in the Plaça Major - in stalls that have been put up by a contracted company and not by traders themselves. An original tender for the stalls was declared void because the company which had won the award had not, according to Palma’s consumer councillor, Antónia Martín, met “the necessary legal requirements". Following this, there was concern that there wouldn’t be sufficient time to launch a new contest, meaning that traders would be left to foot the cost of putting up stalls themselves. However, the town hall was able to put in place an “express” tender process, complying with legal requirements and established terms and conditions.
