Just another market (much less impressive than San Telmo), with a bit of folklore dancing and food - niceish but really not worth the schlep from the city.

We went to the feria at 12:30pm at the end of May and were very disapointed. There was almost no one appart from a few vendors. It is maybe better later in the day ? Or just in summer ?
