ES MERCAT D’FORADA
Every Summer Saturday from 6pm to 10pm
Interactive Market, for the exchange and (re) sell of sustainable, artisanal and local ecological products.
During the establishment of the Ibiza Cooperativa there appeared to be a great need among the participants for the possibility to exchange, buy or sell, local ecological and agricultural products, anywhere on the island of Ibiza, and preferably on a fixed day.
So people from
different ranks of local cultural groups, environmental and humanitarian
organizations, came into action, including the Local Products Group of
the Ibiza Cooperativa, Franchesca Kirby (AAPLE association of artisans
from Ibiza), the owner of Can Tixedo, and of course Chris Dews (Casita
Verde), cooperated with the local authorities towards the creation of
the very first LOCAL PRODUCTS MARKET & Centre for Cultural Exchange,
during the Festival of San Antonio, on January 19, 2013, in the parking
lot of the well-known tapas bar & art café Can Tixedo in Forada
Although that first
morning, a strong wind rose, and some stall holders saw their
merchandise flying through the air or getting wet on the ground, the
majority of the participants remained, enthusiastic to show, swap or
sell their products.
Meanwhile on Saturday,
February 9, under similar weather conditions, the second market day took
place, with 20 stalls.
ES MERCAT D’FORADA - LOCAL PRODUCTS MARKET IBIZA

and love, by individual residents of the island.
