Farmer's Market of San Miguel de Abona
It's six in the morning. Women and men begin to load their vehicles with the best of the season. In addition, the week has been productive and they are convinced that today will be a good day.
Onions, carrots, papayas, leeks, peppers, oranges, tomatoes, jams, bread... All of this is placed with care in the different stalls.
The market is ready to open its doors, and as it does, a tapestry of bright colors is drawn before me, intoxicated with the smells of the garden.
I get lost in its aisles contemplating the variety, the freshness, the quality of our local product, the best price and, of course, the friendliness of those who serve me with a smile and good advice.
It was worth going to this appointment. In my bag, a piece of pumpkin, a bunch of spinach, three heads of garlic and two bubangos.
Today we eat pottage.
Lacasmi Winery (Agricultural Cooperative of San Miguel de Abona)
The winery was created by the initiative of several farmers who made wine with grapes from their potato farms. The elaborations of the time were handmade and for sale in bulk, which is why they feel the concern of joining a cooperative to make wine and start bottling under the label of the Regulatory Council of Abona with the minimum quality parameters required by the market. . In this way, the winery becomes the first regional winery on the island, offering us high-quality wines for more than 30 years. The characteristics of its vineyards are unique, extending from levels close to sea level to very high latitudes, above 1,000 m. above sea level

It was born in 2014 through a small and family project. From the beginning, its owners were clear that they were dealing with a product that was characterized by its closeness to the customer, since it was sold directly at the winery and farmers' markets. A winery that has its corresponding European certification and that always offers the most ecological wine possible. Their Crianza wines stand out, which are born from the best plots and the best grapes, making intervention in them minimal. The result is always the greatest expression of its grapes and its soils.
