We at Camping Mas Nou love ecological initiatives, and even more so if they take place near us. For this reason, we want to talk to you about Eco-Mercats Món Empordà, an alternative sort of market which, week after week, travels around some of the most charming little towns in Empordà, offering its visitors ecological, vicinity and quality products.
Markets get us closer to the land, to a more local and artisanal production, which works without chemical substances or genetic modification; a production brought to you directly from the hand of its producers. You can find all sorts of goods: from food and gastronomic products such as fruits, vegetables, lactics, sausages, mushrooms… to hygiene products and natural cosmetics, cleaning products and tools among many others.
Apart from selling and buying products, markets are also a platform to support local initiatives and recover the values of the land. They are a place to speak, share and exchange knowledge. A place where art, culture, dance and music are welcome too. And an opportunity for kids to learn and have fun wih workshops, puppets and a long etcetera.
The Eco-Market is held every Saturday from 9am to 2pm in the Baix Empordà area. The first Saturday of the month in Rupià, the second in Corçà, the third in Verges and the forth in Torroella de Montgrí. A single visit allows to completely soak up on the good feeling that this way of living awakens: a future with clean air, clear water and a healthy land.
We’d love to know which of the products or activites have surprised you the most on your visit to the Eco-Markets.
