The 8th Mogán Avocado Fair

The eighth Mogán Avocado Fair takes place on Sunday, 3 December 2023 in Arguineguín from 09:00-14:00 at Plaza Pérez Galdós. Sale of avocados and other varieties of fruits. There will also be food and artisan crafts stalls and live music. 

The VIII Avocado Fair will start at 09:00 with the participation of more than fifteen farmers in 12 stands that will be distributed in the 1,160 square meters of the permanent tent located in Pérez Galdós square. It is good to remember that the production volume has been affected by the constant heat waves that Mogán (and Gran Canaria) suffered throughout the summer, but at the fair, there will be more than 3,000 kilos of this green gold available. The predominant varieties Pinkerton, and the Guatemalan breed hybrids will be available for purchase at a price of 3 to 5 euros per kilo.

In Mogán, up to 22 varieties of this fruit are produced during the year and its cultivation occupies about 40 hectares, which makes it one of the main agricultural productions in the municipality along with mango, of which a ton will go on sale this Sunday along with another 1,000 kilos of oranges. There will also be papayas, limes, lemons, pitayas and guavas as well as other vegetables grown in the municipality.

Exceptionally in this edition and due to the climatic conditions that occurred on the island, in solidarity with farmers from other locations,  the municipality of Telde was invited to promote its renowned orange, of which they will also celebrate their own fair on December 17.

In the tent, there will also be eight stalls selling other products such as cheeses, jams, Gran Canaria olive oil, fermented fruit, aloe vera, and honey products. Distributed in the square, there will be around twenty craft stalls and a restaurant with about 10 exhibitors in which there will be no shortage of creations with avocado and other quintessential Mogan products such as mango. Likewise, the offer will include wines from Gran Canaria, craft beer, ice cream, crepes, cocktails, and guarapo. All this is accompanied by live music with the El Mejunje and Cremita de Coco party.
