The town’s emblem
Apricot is the fruit par excellence of Porreres, and in Agroturismo Ses Vistes we feel very proud to say that we have apricots in our farm so you can taste at breakfast time. Apricots are so important for the village of Porreres that they have become the most exported product of the village and even has a fair dedicated exclusively to this delicious fruit.
An emblem of Mallorcan gastronomy
Apricot is not only an emblem of the gastronomy of Porreres, its importance has made it become an avant-garde fruit in Mallorca’s exports abroad. And not only outside, apricot is one of the most consumed fruits throughout the island, because with it you can do wonders. From ensaimadas to marmalades.
From May to August, the apricot producers of Porreres harvest their fruits with affection, before they reach your mouth. Porreres produces 70% of the island’s apricots.
The Porreres apricot fair is a tribute to a fruit that has put the picturesque village of Porreres on the map. On a Saturday afternoon in June, the fair is held every year. A large number of visitors come every year to taste the delights made with this fruit.
The town square is home to little places where you can buy apricots, freshly fallen from the tree, and even products derived from the fruit. Without a doubt, the most demanded product at the fair is the famous apricot ensaimada, which mixes two typical and tasty products from Mallorca.
In addition to being able to buy the products, this fair has a popular apricot coconut contest, a tasting of sweet and salty dishes prepared by the bars and restaurants of the town and a lot of music and dancing.
Don’t leave without tasting the delicious fruit emblem of Porreres.
