10 years of excellence, Adeje Farmers Market
The Adeje department of the environment, presided over by Councillor Esther Rivero Vargas, is organising a series of activities this Sunday, December 9th, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the inauguration of the Adeje Farmers Market, which, every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, brings the best, “from the farm to your table”.
“Since the Farmers Market has been in operation the public has been able to enjoy quality local fresh produce, grown by people who live in or near the borough and we have seen how the Farmers Market has also become a tool for social and economic growth in the rural areas of Adeje, which is something to be proud of as the produce also meets all of the EU standards for quality and healthy eating”, said the councillor.
She continued, “Freshness, quality and an excellent choice along with accessible prices have been the standards set by this market over its ten years and all of our stall holders have played an important part in the evolution of the market. Today a lot of hotels and restaurants opt for local produce because they know it offers excellence in taste, texture and quality in preparing their menus”.
The produce on sale every week incudes fruit and vegetables, flowers, crafts, cakes and biscuits, honeys, cheeses, meats, and wines. And this Sunday the Adeje council is inviting everyone to join them in celebrating this special day. From 11am there will be show cooking with Pablo Pastor using produce from the market, followed by a tasting with live background music provided by Grupo Chabor. All of the stall holders will be receiving a small gift in appreciation of their work over the years, and there will be a photo-call opportunity for all those who drop in to shop during the morning. The market is open from 8am.
