This was reported yesterday by the Councilor for Rural Development, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the La Laguna City Council, Aitor López, who stressed that the initiative “satisfies a need of the sector itself, which requires the opening of short marketing channels, and of the population itself, which increasingly demands local and seasonal products that are more respectful of the environment”.
In subsequent statements, the mayor, Luis Yeray Gutiérrez, underlined “the agricultural potential of the northeast for the primary sector,” and noted that, with initiatives like this, “we want to contribute to its development.”
It is a non-sedentary, provisional and itinerant market, which will also be held in Bajamar and Punta del Hidalgo after winter. Meanwhile, in December it will alternate between Tejina, days 4 and 24, and Valle de Guerra, days 11 and 18, and will continue to do so from January 8. Aitor López pointed out that, likewise, this month there will be complementary activities to the market aimed at boys and girls, which will be extended from January with exhibitions, gastronomy or healthy cooking. In addition, depending on its evolution, the Area will consider opening it on Saturdays as well. The Association of the Primary and Artisanal Sector Knowledge and Flavors of the Northeast is in charge of its management. This market will be open until the launch of the northeast agricultural market, which will be located on the La Castellana farm, in Tejina, thanks to an agreement with the Cabildo.
