Help support a sustainable marketplace by patronizing businesses that truly “walk-the-talk”:
- Municipal and Farmers’ markets This is where you’ll find all types of fresh, local food – produce, fish, chicken, cheese, eggs, and so on. Not only that, it is a very pleasant experience and after a short while you will become a recognized “regular”. The main municipal market in the city of Segovia is La Albuera. You can find information about hours and products here.
On the first Saturday of the month from 10:00 – 14:00, there is an open-air ecological market located in the Plaza de Doctor Laguna. Here you will find organic products, fresh produce, medicinal plants and teas, cheeses and yogurts, eggs, chicken, bread, beer and oil, among other things. The market promotes locally grown food as well as the direct relationship between producer and consumer.
