The Farmers’ Market returns to Puerto Portals. This is the third edition of this market that supports local ‘zero kilometre’ products, and will count with the participation of around twenty exhibitors that will be settled at the marina’s boulevard every Sunday during May from 10am to 16pm. During the event, items such as fresh products, local crafts, cosmetics or accessories, amongst others, will be at the visitor’s disposal; all of them produced and marketed local wise.
Sundays in May will radiate a family atmosphere due to the different adult-aimed activities such as Yoga, Tai-Chi, Acro-yoga or Body Balance; and for the littlest ones, the Farmer’s Fun children’s area will offer activities like the ‘zero kilometre’ face painting and several workshops where to learn Majorcan customs and traditions, like Majorcan fabrics or clay modelling.
Visitors will have the chance to savour delicious foods at the stands and food trucks, to enjoy the picnic area under the ficus’ shades and to listen to live music from local bands such as Noah Newville, Hot Hit, Clau de Sol and Wacky Tobacco, filling the port with fantastic rhythms from their acoustic shows. This year’s novelty comes with a ball de bot (jumping dance) parade, transmitting the island’s proximity to all the visitors.
Farmers’ Markets are arising as part of a movement that makes a commitment to products known as ‘proximity’ or ‘short chain’ products, developed and marketed local wise, reducing therefore the ecological footprint.
One for one, solidarity shopping
For the third year in a row, Puerto Portals cooperates with the NGO Mallorca Sense Fam by means of the movement named ‘One for One’, thanks to it, a weekly solidarity basket full of local fruits and vegetables is donated via the visitors’ purchases. For every sold product marked as ‘One for One’, the marina will donate another one to the NGO. In 2018’s edition around 290kg of local products were collected and given to Mallorca Sense Fam.
