COSTA Almeria produce and cuisine will be in the spotlight in what will be the third edition of the Feria Almanzora Gourmet.
Cuevas del Almanzora council said the essence of the event will remain the agro-food sector and gastronomy, but there will also be several interesting new features this time, details of which it will announce in the coming weeks.
This year’s fair will be held over the final weekend of March, but the local authority’s Trade department, along with the Cuevas Business and Traders’ Association and the Levante Almeriense Friends of Wine Association are already immersed in the preparations for an event which is attracting increasingly more exhibitors and members of the public.
Thousands of people visited last year’s show staged at the municipal multi-purpose warehouse, where they could try cold meats, sweet dishes, beers, wines, tapas and artisan products of all kinds. There were also junior cooking workshops, cooking demonstrations, and a whole bunch of activities orientated around the province’s products and food producers.
The council said it expected this year’s fair to be even more successful than the last, and would once again be offering the “best of our land” and an opportunity for “our artisans and businesspeople to show the great quality of the products they produce and market.”
Trade councillor Melchora Caparros promised “an extensive showcase for our gastronomy”, and said artisans and businesses from all over the province will be taking part, including those participating in the Diputacion de Almeria ‘Sabores Almeria’ quality brand initiative.
