Feria de Mosto, Los Marines . . . . more than just ‘mosto’

So its not only mosto that one finds at the feria de mosto in Los Marines. It is a brilliant way to kill a couple of hours wandering from stall to stall, checking out all of the artisan products of the sierras de Aracena, and all while trying a never ending selection of the local young wine aka ‘mosto’.

Check out all the amazing products . . . just peer over my shoulder . . .

No more than 5 meters into the village and you find the locals spilling out into the street – This weekend is perfect for the feria – crisp autumn air and brilliant sunshine – what better way to spend the afternoon with friends trying the local mosto, chowing down on migas (not a personal favourite – but when its cold out, a good stodgy plate of migas is quite appealing) and sampling the local artisan cheeses and sweets being sold in the pavilion.

I have been going to the Feria de Mosto in Los Marines for more than a couple of years now. Its not actually that I particularly like the mosto, but I do love that like all local ferias, it gives people from all the different villages a reason to get together and spend some hours in each others company. It is the spirit of community that I love. . . . well that and the fabulous fruit jellies that I always buy.

Plus you add the cheeses, pastries, toys and not to mention the live chickens . . . what more can you want.

anyone for  live chicken???

Yet another reason to venture into the Sierras during the colder months . . . there is always a way to keep warm – in this case from the inside out!
and lets not forget the cheese – in particular the Torta de Casar aka gooey goodness . . . slice the top off and scoop out the creamiest most fabulous cheese ever.
(Just a preview really of next weeks Feria de Queso here in Aracena).

Al in all a great afternoon – thanks to all . . .
