Almost like a prolongation of the surrounding green countryside, the Farmers’ Market of La Guancha boasts, in many of its 45 stalls, the best, locally grown fruit and vegetables. The market is a haven of potatoes, in all its varieties and colours, and with appealing names: Azucena, Ojo de perdiz, Bonita.
A tour of the stalls will take you to Antonio and Juana’s cheeses, finalists in the Pinolere contest and providing a taste of the fine cheeses of La Palma. Quite likely, you will be offered a roast pork titbit in La Granja El Cardón, you will ask yourselves where the grapefruit-sized lemons of the next stall come from, and you won’t be able to resist a slice of walnut and chocolate cake in Dulcería Lucy. Handicrafts are found in the form of wickerwork, ceramics and flowers beside the lift inside the market, which will take you to the Asador de la Villa terrace with its irresistible aroma of the wood fire used to roast chicken and tempting ribs.
