Mallorca celebrates Fires for everything Mallorcan, from the Fira for honey to the Fira for olive oil, and from the Fira for melons to the Fira for herbs.
Surprising then, that there never was a Fira for the ultimate Mallorcan produce, the sobrassada. Until today, that is.
Campos del Port, better known simply as Campos, organizes the Iª Fira de sa Sobrassada de Mallorca, starting today, October 16th, 11h00, until Saturday, October 18th. There will also be a Ruta Gastronòmica with the participation of nine restaurants, five bars, and one pastry shop (Can Pomar), where you can try sobrassada with wild setas, llomillo de porc amb sobrassada, sobrassada with snails, sobrassada with calamares, bacalao with sobrassada, or sobrassada con miel, to name but a few of the sobrassada feasts.
You’ll find the Fira de sa Sobrassada in Campos, in the Plaça de Can Pere Ignasi. The venues for the Ruta Gastronòmica are spread all over the pueblo of Campos, but also inlude the Club Nàutic de Sa Ràpita in Sa Rapita. Here is a link to the Ajuntament de Campos website with all the relevant information (Catalàn only, I am afraid).
