The Christmas market in the port of Cartagena will have fifteen craft stalls

The Christmas market will return to the port of Cartagena.

The already traditional Christmas market in the port will have fifteen booths this year with artisan shops that will offer products of all kinds, from accessories to food, fashion and stationery, among other products. The Port Authority has tendered the rental, assembly, installation, maintenance and dismantling of the booths, as well as the decoration, organization and surveillance of the market for an amount of 42,229 euros.

Interested companies can submit their offers until November 29 and the award will be announced on the 4th. The forecast is that around December 15 the market can be installed and operating.

This is the third edition of this Christmas fair that started in the last legislature from the Port Authority and the then Councilor for Commerce, Manuel Padín, and which has won every year in activities and visitors. And it is that, while the port agency focuses on the assembly and activities of the event, it is the City Council that is in charge of the content of the booths, that is, what products are shown and sold at the fair.

In fact, according to municipal sources, the Department of Commerce is already working on the composition of the market, which will be similar to that of previous years, which, as will be remembered, was coordinated by La Hormiga Happy Market.

As for the assembly contract, Companies submitting their offers must take into account that the award criteria focuses on three parameters such as the economic offer, which represents 80% of the final valuation; the incorporation of the corporate colors of the Port Authority in the decoration of the market, with up to 10 points; and the programming of activities, which can also reach up to 10% of the final valuation. Thus, that offer that raises up to 5 cultural initiatives may add 10 points to its offer, while the proposal of 4 activities will obtain 8; that of 3.6; that of 2.4; and, finally, that of 1.2 points.

Once the market is inaugurated, it will remain open until January 7. The opening, despite the fact that in previous years it has coincided with the Christmas lighting, scheduled for day 5, will depend on the award of the assembly contract.
