Meet the Farmers, Azorean style. Unlike Mercado de Graça in Ponta Delgada, this is a market that most people don’t get to see or experience, including locals! Happening only on a Thursday, this is where the farmers meet, buy and sell their produce and livestock and get together for a chat.
We leave the estate at 10:00 or meet people at the market around 10:30 and then at the coffee truck at 11:00. We’ll take a look round a real local market (where farmers meet once a week). Here we can find some great value, and local fruits and vegetables from the people who grow them. Pick up some local specialities (like honey and pineapples) to take home.
Buying products here at the market helps to support the local economy and helps the farmers here on the island. Supporting and growing the local economy is one of the sustainable goals of the Solar Branco Eco Estate.
In the area you will also find one of the top restaurants in the Azores, Restaurante Da Associacao Agricola.
