Adeje Ayuntamiento has announced that the Las Torres weekend agricultural market is to add a weekly Wednesday opening to meet demand from regular customers. The new scheme will start on Wednesday 1 April, with opening hours for the midweek market from 4–8pm. During the first few weeks the council will be running a number of parallel activities on Wednesdays to increase awareness of the additional day. These will include courses in fruit and vegetable carving, a workshop for celiacs, a dessert course, making cup cakes, wine, cheese and honey sampling, flower arranging, etc. Details of each course will be published by the ayuntamiento in advance.
Adeje Farmers Market first opened its doors to the public six years ago and is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am-1.30pm. Councillor Esther Rivero Vargas said that “the success of this borough service has been noted from the start. On any given weekend we can expect up to 2,500 shoppers. A few months ago we carried out a survey among shoppers and included a question regarding a possible mid-week opening. The response was overwhelmingly in favour.”
