Saveurs de Terroir, Argelès-sur-Mer
11th July - 19th September
Saveurs de Terroir
Summer is in full swing across our beautiful region and the great, locally-produced food and wine is abundant… HURRAY! There’s no better time than now to support our region’s producers.
EVERY SATURDAY THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER, FROM 5.30pm TO 8.30PM
Working hard on our behalf are the local producers and farmers, using their expertise to showcase our region’s finest food and drink.
And what better way to sample the wares than France’s best invention : l’apéritif. Somewhere between snack and starter, this lingering culinary exploration is best enjoyed on a shady terrace, with views over the beaches and mountains that make our area so special.
If you didn’t get chance to take part last year, Saveurs du terroir (local tastes) is a union of a dozen local hedonists, each Saturday, throughout the summer, sharing the fruits of their labour and guiding you on a gastronomic journey of epic proportions.
Charcuterie, olive oil, fresh fruit and vegetables, biscuits and sweet treats, cheese, salts, wines, beers and much more besides ; organic, local and made with Catalan pride.
Participation costs just €3 (which will also get you a reusable souvenir eco-cup) per person and all produce can be bought and taken home to share with friends, family and neighbours during your own apéritifs – or snaffled tout seul, if you prefer!
From 11th July to 19th September, Saveurs du terroir welcomes you every Saturday, 5.30pm-8.30pm, Esplanade Charles Trenet, Argelès-sur-Mer.
Coming from the French word ‘terre’ for “soil,” the word ‘terroir’ originally described the special characteristics of a region, or piece of land, which gave different varieties of wine, coffee and tea their individuality. (Soil, climate, position, regional traditions….)
Over the centuries, French winemakers developed and took for their own the concept of terroir but the word is still often used to describe rural activities, harvest festivals etc.
Throughout the year, the P-O celebrates every imaginable ‘produit de terroir’, be it animal, vegetable or mineral. Any excuse for a party! Check out our list of events here.
