EL MERCADO DEL AGRICULTOR


Cada sabado, a las ocho de la manana, vamos a San Isidro para comprar nuestros verduras y frutas para la semana al Mercado del Agricultor cerca del autopista. El foto ariba esta desde su calendario de 2012.

Every Saturday, at eight in the morning, we go to San Isidro to buy our vegetables and fruit for the week at the Farmers Market just off the motorway. The above photo is from their 2012 calendar.


Junto al puerta es este puesto de tartas y enpanadas y mucho mas, todo para engordase y delicioso.

Just inside the door is this stall with cakes and pies and much more, all of it fattening and delicious.

Eso es mi marida hablando al propriedor y probando su enpanada de atun.

This is my husband talking to the stall-holder and trying his tuna pie.



En otro lado del columna verde es su mujer con un puesto de salsas y mermeledas. Tiene que probar su salsa piquante.

On the other side of the green pillar is his wife with a stall of sauces and preserves. You must try her spicy sauce.

Hay otros puestos con verduras, frutas y ensalada, todo muy fresco y barato. Esta pareja venden tambien croquetas artesanas de verduras y, a veces, cetas.

There are other stalls with vegetables, fruit and salad, all fresh and cheap. This couple also sell homemade vegetable croquettes and sometimes wild mushrooms.

Puedes comprar tambien el vino de Tenerife, o miel de pais, y frutas como platanos, ciruelas, mangos, sandia, peras, higos, higos picos etc.

You can also buy Tenerife wine, or local honey, and fruit such as bananas, plums, mangoes, watermelon, pears, figs, and cactus fruit.

Y entonces hay queso de cabra, hecho por mano.
Y miel de pais y liquor de miel.
Se abre los sabados y los domingos.
?Que mas quieres?

And then there is hand-made goat cheese.
And local honey and honey liquor.
They open Saturdays and Sundays.
What more do you want?

  4. I love these markets -- in addition to those I visit regularly in the summer and fall in the U.S., I've been to outdoor and indoor markets in France, Norway, and other places we visited in our travels. My favorite things to buy were always the cheeses, and goat cheese is one of my favorites. In the fall, the markets always smell like roasted hot peppers.
