with tetir artisan market proposals

Tetir artisan market with new proposals
First date of the year with the Artisan Market of Tetir
  • The call will be on Sunday, March 10 and includes as novelties the presentation of craft beers made on the island and the promotion of reusable bags, actions promoted from the city's own Tourism Council.
  • The groups "La Taifa" and "If it's late we go" will be in charge of setting the activity live with live music.
The Department of Tourism of the City Council of Puerto del Rosario, directed by Paloma Hernández, points out that the June appointment with the Tetir artisan market is an excellent opportunity to spend a day on Sunday knowing the artisan products and enjoying a leisure proposal in a rural environment like that of La Vega de Tetir.

  On Sunday, March 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. , a new edition of the Vega de Tetir Artisan Market will be held, which is being held on a regular basis every quarter.

The most innovative activity in this edition of the Tetir Artisan Market is undoubtedly the presentation of craft beers. For the first time in Fuerteventura, craftsmen from the Canary Islands can join together to present their gastronomic beers made with natural products. From the island of Fuerteventura will be presented "Laja" fruit of the union of some hospitality entrepreneurs, a beer type American Pale Ale.

The Tetir Market, which has already been in existence for more than ten years, continues to consolidate edition after edition, presenting an average of 35 stands in the last editions, bringing the number of artisans who meet in the Plaza de Tetir each quarter, It does not stop growing. In the same sense, the tents and shadow areas have been gaining space for the comfort of artisans and visitors. The children's audience also continues to have its own offer of activities.

Pastries, traditional products and a lively atmosphere are some of the keys that define the Tetir Artisan Market that is displayed in the public square of the town.

Within the planned schedule there will also be a place for different draws among the attending public. Sometimes, camel or donkey rides alternate with bicycle tours completing the proposal of the Council of Tourism of the City in each edition of the Market.

The Market of the Vega de Tetir, under its formula of quarterly convocation, conserves the organization under the Department of Tourism of the City Council of Puerto del Rosario, with the collaboration of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura from its Culture area.

I went along to the market on Sunday and spent an enjoyable hour there.

The field where the dog show was held last time was no longer green and lush!:

Some great local fruit and veg for sale:

Some stuff that looked a bit fishy!:

Tasters of various cheeses and preserves and this stall offering tasters of gofia which had just been moulded into a ball inside a goat skin!:

Then on to the craft beers. Ocho Pies (8 feet??) and LAJA seemed be the 2 Fuerte ones and there were 2 other Canarian brews. LAJA did it for me as it was icy cold and on tap!

Live music added to the atmosphere and the resident cafes/bar were doing a roaring trade.

A pleasant change for an hour or two.

Walking back to the car I passed a tree that looked totally dead but was offering a haven to hundreds of snails:

a very pretty garden:

and an old well/reservoir that was so deep we couldn't see the bottom and was covered in very dried out poles! (It was well fenced in.)

The quarterly market was on again today so we went to Tetir for an hour or 3.
The church was open so we took the opportunity to have a look around inside, quite interesting and several very nice features, I particularly liked the wooden roof seen from the inside. The very large religious paintings didn't do much for me but it looks as if they have uncovered some old frescoes on the wall that held my attention far more.
A look round the various stalls, they seem much the same ones each visit, bought some fresh fruit and veg including a very large pineapple. Attacking it later at home found it tasted even better than it looked - absolutely gorgeous! Bought some more of the craft beers that we tried last time. Watched a display of Canarian dancing to Canarian music - nice to see some mature ladies playing the guitars - and all the dancers and musicians seemed to really being enjoying themselves.
The big tree outside the church caught me attention today, I think it's an Acacia or Eucalyptus, the trunk/bark looked very attractive with it's patchy, peeling effect. Taking a pic of the tree showed me the date on the church, 1883.
