The popular food festival known as the Festival Enogastronómico Saborea Lanzarote takes place in La Villa de Teguise, the old capital this weekend.

More than 60 exhibitors have taken space in the Gastro Market for the 7th edition of this event, so there is plenty of choice to taste local dishes and wines produced on the island.

The festival is open from 10:30 – 20:00 on Saturday 25th November, and 10:30 – 16:00 on Sunday 26th November 2017.

There is a special section for children, called Chinijo Chef and show cooking events, plus live entertainment. El Golpito will be performing in concert on Saturday at 19:30 and pop rock band Tío Matt will be performing at 16:00 on Sunday.

The Casa del Producto Canario has been set up in the Palacio Spínola building where workshops and tastings of the best Canarian products will take place.

A free bus service is available from Costa Teguise to La Villa on Saturday.

Visitors can make use of the Teguise Sunday market buses to access the food fair on the second day of the event.

Our food fairs operate on a ticket system, look for the booths where you can exchange cash for tickets, it normally costs 1 ticket for a glass for your wine tasting, then stalls charge from 1 ticket per tasting for food. 1€ equals 1 ticket.

Chef Ángel León from Andalucia who has just received his 3rd Michelín star for his restaurant Aponiente, and 1st star for Alevante will be making an appearance at the food festival.
