The Organization of the Insular Handicraft Fair considers the improvement of the pavement as a priority, where the tents, the stalls and all kinds of public services are installed.

The Municipality of Antigua, the Mafasca Collective Foundation and the Cabildo of Fuerteventura assess the improvements required by the site where, as in previous years, the new edition of the Insular Craft Fair 2019 will be installed.

The Councilor for Works and Services, Matías Peña, the Councilor for Culture and Education, Mario Jordán, the president of the Mafasca Collective Foundation, Nereida Brito and the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Handicrafts, Juan José Herrera, together with municipal technicians, visited this morning the lot where the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th of May, will take place the XXXII Insular Fair of Handicrafts Fuerteventura 2019, annexed to the Cheese Museum, in Antigua.

Improving and expanding the firm pavement, the location of public services, access, parking spaces, entrances and exits, or material storage areas are some of the issues that have been valued during the visit, in order to be improved in this new edition, with respect to the previous ones.

Spent 3 hours at La Feria on Saturday, very enjoyable. Lots of cheese tasting, and mojos and mermeladas. Some gorgeous hot almonds in crunchy caramel and what looked like olives but were actually pistachios covered in white chocolate (coloured green), scrummy! A cake that is best described as a Belgian bun with loads of cherries in a sauce in the middle completed my indulgences for the day! Certainly no room for lunch  Wink 

My first time of seeing a sign banning the use of drones!

Several of the 'cakes' available to buy by the slab/slice, the first pic is gofio, not sure what the one in the paella pan was but it tasted quite nice!:
