Quarteira gypsy market

For the last couple of years I've visited a fantastic outdoor market in quarteira, (I think it is only there once a week on wednesdays). Does anyone know if it still runs?

Still runs Wednesday on a new site about 2 miles out of town towards Almancil. Not walking distance in the heat !! There is a bus as someone will advise re times etc.

The buses from Vilamoura and Quarteira to Faro stop at the market location.

I am not sure if the 'Directa' buses stop there, the others certainly do.

Hello, I was going to start a new thread but thought it better to add to this one as it hasnt been too long since the last reply :)

I was wondering if the market is on any other day in a different place nearby?

I'd like to visit it twice but working the dates of flights, it's much cheaper to fly back home on the wednesday instead of the thursday after, so would mean i would miss it the 2nd visit.

Thank you for your time.

There are two similar big outdoor markets in the area, with more or less the same people and stalls.

Loulé market is every Saturday morning, not far from the town centre. Albufeira market is on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday mornings of the month and is next to the town's main bus station about a mile to the north of the old town centre..
