This past weekend a local produce sale was held in the Plaza Bouganvilla, Los Gigantes.
It was an event in which farmers from different parts of the island could show their products (honey, cheese, pastries, wine, potatoes … ) The event was organized by the Local Development Agency, Tourism, the Department of Agriculture Hall of the Historic Village of Santiago del Teide and Tenerife Pantry.

The Pantry is a project of the Tenerife Cabildo de Tenerife and Tenerife Rural Foundation. The aim is to promote the local produce of the island. Among the initiatives under this project include the creation of the website (productosdetenerife.com) where users can access the different products of the land with the possibility of purchasing from home.

Jose Joaquin Bethencourt, Minister of Agriculture of the Cabildo of Tenerife, said that “one of the priorities in this area of the council is to relocate to society the importance of eating local produce because they all represent our culture, tradition and source of wealth for our people.”
