Autumn Food Fairs


Autumn is the time of the big village firas each with a special theme or subject, mostly food, wine and related produce. There is the Sobrassada fair, the Pebre Bord do, the Olive Oil fair, the Honey fair, the Mushroom fair and so forth.

The II Fira de Sa Sobrassada will be held in Campos del Port from tomorrow, October 22nd, until Saturday, October 24th. The fira is part of the annual Campos Fira Octubre 2009 which started last Sunday and will continue until October 30th. The highlight of the three day Sobrassada event will be a Tast de Suquet de Sobrassada amb Mel this Thursday at 18h30, whatever the tast may be. Antoni Pinya, a celebrity chef, will do the honours, I am told, involving some show cooking I suppose.

Neighbouring Felanitx will hold its annual main fair, the Mostra Folklòrica Fira del Pebre Bord (Paprika Fair) on Sunday, October 25th, a one-day, all-day affair. The event is a big fira market with plenty of parallel festive activities, Ball de Bot, a Trobada de Gegants and what have you.

A Fira de Tardor i Fira des Vi will be celebrated in Consell from October 23rd to 25th, whilst Inca begins its fair calendar on October 25th, to culminate in the very popular Dijous Bo, held on the third Tursday of November. Dijous Bo is the biggest of all special markets in Mallorca, or so they say.

The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Campos del Port, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: October 16th, 2008. The time was 12:12:05.

  1. What a coincidence! I have just finished a post about Carneceria Ca’n Matarino in Soller and wrote about Sobrassada. I will submit this tomorrow and link to your blog. Have a nice evening!
