The organic and artisan market is a shopping alternative away from the classic commercial circuits and large stores. Here we will find the stamp of the genuine without intermediaries and in an almost festive atmosphere. A few dozen street vendors, who come from all over Asturias, carry the purest gastronomy and crafts of the Principality as a flag and combine it with different fun and educational activities at street level.
