For over 1 year in Rethymno there are problems with the market in the harbor area. The sales people dont want to move to another place and for the last 2 weeks they blocked the beach road with their merchandise. The EU rules are that no harbor should be used for public benefits like a parking, fair or weekly market. The city government of Rethymno offered the sales people an alternative place behind DEI and the music school, but this was not accepted. I think that we will have the troubles for some more weeks until the tourist season is finished. But take notice that there are 2 more markets per week in Rethymno, on Saturday near KTEL bus station and on Monday next to the police academy. Their inside court would be perfect for a market or maybe the parking at the footbal stadium of Galos.
