Tantalise your taste buds at this year’s International Algarve Fair. With so much to see and do at the weekend-long event held at Fatacil, Lagoa on 2 and 3 June, you’ll be glad of a little rest, a bite and a chance to sample some of the wonderful food available, catering to all tastes.
Both adults and children alike are bound to find plenty of things they like, from snacks, to drinks, treats to main meals; the International Algarve Fair has something for everyone.
A number restaurants serving international cuisine will be located in the main arena. There you will find South African cuisine, with the mouth watering boerewors rolls. Thai and Asian food from ‘Lemongrass’ in Lagos, a children’s restaurant with delicious pancakes from O’Kido, as well as traditional Portuguese food from ‘O Paleta’ restaurant.
As we’re celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on the same weekend, there will also be a British Food Festival in the main arena, with restaurants providing traditional British fare.
Family Home Catering will be selling the quintessentially British snack of strawberries and cream, along with a glass of bubbly for the princely sum of €3. All Saints Anglican Church will be presenting British favourites served with a smile, such as bacon and/or sausage butties, BLTs, home-made cakes and strawberry cream teas.
All Saints will also be looking after the stand holders from early Saturday morning breakfast until closing time on Sunday. Orders will be taken and delivered to stands for those too busy to take a break!
Tavira-based restaurant Jamie’s Cozinha will feature pasta and pizza dishes, while restaurant Kohinoor will be serving up spicy Indian dishes, both cuisines that are extremely popular in Britain. And of course, no British Food Festival would be complete without a tasty pasty from Borley’s Pies.
For the sweet toothed among you, there will also be Boutique Pão e Pão from Vilamoura, serving up ‘The Best Chocolate Cake in the World’ as well as ‘The Best Pão de Ló in the Universe’, among other divinely rich and sinful delights. Tavira-based tea specialists Saboreia Chá e Café will also have a stand to promote teas as well as gourmet products such as chocolates and other goodies, as will the stand from Algarve Gourmet.
For children and the young at heart, and because no fair would be complete without it, there will also be popcorn and candy floss sellers at the event.
Those not wanting a full meal, but perhaps a light snack may be tempted by the Indian snacks and drinks at Samrat’s bar.
All that walking in the fabulous Algarve sunshine is bound to make visitors thirsty, which is why there will once again be ‘caipirinhas’ and cocktails served on the lawn opposite the main pavilion, as well as free wine tastings at the Wine Show and fruity alcohol-free ice drinks ‘granizados’ available.
Of course, no visit to the International Algarve Fair is complete without a stop at The Portugal News Café. Located inside the main pavilion, visitors will be able to meet and chat to staff from The Portugal News as well as enjoy a freshly brewed coffee, soft drink or traditionally Portuguese ‘pastel de nata’ custard tart.
The team look forward to seeing you there!
If you have a business, you cannot afford to miss being at the International Algarve Fair. A limited number of stands for restaurants and businesses are still available, but hurry as time is running short and they are selling fast!
