Canet de Mar, new friends and lots of solidarity

Last 26th and 27th of July was a very intense weekend for us. We went to Fira d’Artesania i Regal de Canet de Mar (40 km from Barcelona) which coincided with Festa del Tomàquet (the tomato party), a gastronomic gathering where restaurants local and regional offer a variety of menus where all the dishes are cocked with the tomato grown in Maresme.

Canet de Mar, Marga & Carmen

We could set our stand in this beautiful city in Maresme thanks to the co-operation of the Economic Promotion Department of the Canet de Mar Council.

This was not our first trip outside Igualada, but it was the farthest. This allowed us to make our initiative and our association known to new friends. We are so happy for this and also for the good reception we had there. The tourists and the local people treated us excellently.

Canet de Mar, parada

There done many kilometres, lots of hours spent, with hot weather and tiredness, but it was worthy for the funds raised and for the diffusion we made. This will help us to keep helping Àlex… and what is more, we could explain our initiative to lots of new people and we hope this will be helpful in the future.

As always, thanks to all the people who make this possible!

At the Canet de Mar craft fair

This weekend we are going back on the road to keep helping Àlex. This Saturday and Sunday, July 26th and 27th, we will be at craft fair Fira d’Artesania i Regal de Canet de Mar (about 40km from Barcelona) an artisans and entities meeting that coincides with the Festa del Tomàquet (the tomato party, a gastronomic meeting that brings together town and local restaurants with varied menus and special dishes made with tomatoes grown in Maresme’s area).

This fair will be held on Saturday and Sunday from 6pm to 11pm at Plaça Universitat. Our participation is possible thanks to the collaboration of the economic and promotion area of Canet de Mar’s city council, whose disposition and help in introducing our initiative to citizens and tourists from this beautiful town in Maresme has been vital.

If this weekend you decide to come and taste Maresme’s tomatoes don’t forget to come and say hello and to take with you some of our association’s original items.
