Mazo Farmer’s Market

Mazo Farmer's Market

Mazo has a farmer’s market. Most of the stalls sell fruit and veg, but there are a few selling things like organic bread, flowers, or hand-made biscuits. This week there’s a second-hand stall run by school kids, raising money for the end-of-school-year trip.

Trapiche - the sugar cane stall
My son’s favourite stall crushes sugar cane through a small mangle, and sells the juice. You can had a tumbler of cane juice, orange juice or mixed juice for €2. But my favourite is a mojito: rum with cane juice, lemon and mint. It’s seriously yummy at €4, and the good news for drivers is that they do take-aways. (Do NOT have one before driving. It must be equivalent to a British triple measure.) Opening times are Saturday from 3 pm to 7 pm, and Sunday, 9 am to 1 pm.

Upstairs you’ll find a craft market – lots of embroideries, and a few other things. It’s a good place to get one-of-a-kind souvenirs. They open longer hours than the food market: Monday- Friday, 10 am – 2 pm and 3 pm – 6 pm, Saturdays, 11 am – 6 pm and Sundays, 10 am – 2 pm.
