Does anyone know where I can buy a large amount of driveway gravel in the Faro region? I want to find the place where the local hardware businesses buy it and sell in small amounts at high prices.
Many thanks

Nice theory but the local guys are providing the transport and by the time you have arranged that separately then the saving you will get from buying from the crusher plant (big one at Cimpor quarry in Loulé) will make up for any difference assuming your time in organising it all is for free.

If timing is not critical then any local builders merchant will sit and do a deal at an agreed % over cost. They are all aware that incremental reliable business is useful and in my experience are never excessively greedy. Go talk

Thank you for your reply. I will check out the quarry if I can find it; do you have a general direction in that area?
