Savour the taste of the market gardens of Almeria
Almeria is known by many as the market garden of Europe thanks to its fertile land, and to the fact that it enjoys an average of 3000 hours of sunshine a year. Now you have the chance to discover it through a series of guided visits to its farmlands, which end with a chance to taste some of the delicious vegetables fresh from the gardens, including some of the most popular products such as the tomato.
The visits take in the various different types of greenhouses used in Almeria, and are a way of learning more about the techniques used. There is also a brief summary of the history of the countryside in Almeria, including a look at the most commonly used farming techniques and the latest technology now in use. The best moment comes at the end of the visit, when participants are invited to sample delicacies such as fresh vegetables with extra virgin olive oil, bread and honey.

Things to remember: The visits are organised by private companies, so you are advised to contact the Almeria tourist offices beforehand.
