The time of your vacation is idleness for some, activities for others, but always accompanied by the taste discovery of local products, local cuisine!

Happiness on your plate is undoubtedly a composition of freshness, smells, flavors and colors. What's better than buying quality local products (and seasonal!) to whet your appetite?
But how to recognize “real” local products and, above all, where to find them?
Here, in the Mediterranean Pyrenees, our producers come to meet you! Whatever your daily activities, you will most likely cross their paths…

Traditional markets, the “Mercats de la terra”

To buy seasonal fruits and vegetables and local products, go to our traditional markets which take place all year round in our villages. In a warm atmosphere, these colorful markets offer residents and visitors pleasant moments of exchange.
The “Terra Markets” are monthly markets with producers 100% from here, all ecological, all agricultural or food and always with the aim of promoting agriculture and a good, clean and fair food.

Gourmet Evenings

Here is an ideal evening to do with the family, to satisfy the different tastes of young and old!
Organized in July and August by the association “Les Saveurs des Albères”, each week in a different village, these evenings bring together the producers of our region. They offer you, for a festive evening, dishes typical taste from here: Organic pork sausages and grilled meats, snails à la planxa, platters of local cheeses, tapas, as well as wines, beers and other drinks with Mar i Munt flavours!

Winemakers aperitifs

Between April and October, our team welcomes you every Monday evening at a local winemaker. These appointments, aimed exclusively at adults, go far beyond a simple wine tasting. Our partners are happy to receive you directly at their home, sometimes in the vineyards, more often in the cellars or in their shops. Everyone has their own techniques, habits and tasting tips… each meeting is a moment of conviviality and exchange!

Kayak vineyard tour

Here is a very nice variant of the classic Apéritifs vignerons, to combine sport and taste!
In the marine nature reserve of Cerbère-Banyuls, discover the landscapes of our vineyards from the sea during a supervised kayak trip, commented by a passionate winemaker. The experience ends with a wine tasting directly on the beach, at the foot of the terraced vineyards!

To find out the next dates for these winegrower walks, continue to follow us on social networks.

For me, these are privileged moments to exchange and appreciate the products of our region!
