The Great Taste Market of Malaga exceeds 72,000 visitors
The Great Taste Market in Malaga exceeds 72,000 visitors and is an essential boost for food producers in the province.
The Great Market of Taste of Malaga, which is due to close today Sunday August 22, saw its summer edition take place in the capital of Malaga. By closing, more than 72,000 visitors are expected to have come to the event.
The event was called a “success in terms of attendance”, according to Francisco Salado, president of the Provincial Council.
It is expected that data on sales and average visitor spending will be released in the coming days by Tourism and Planning Costa del Sol. However, so far the numbers they have recorded for attendance at the event appear to be similar to those recorded before the start of the coronavirus pandemic. According to Salado, this “will likely be reflected in the volume of sales and, therefore, will be an essential boost for producers in the province in these times of crisis.”
The event is considered “a tourist attraction in the province of Malaga”, and it will be held again this year in December, as is the tradition.
According to 20 minutes, during the last edition of the show “which took place at Christmas 2020 for five days, more than 50,000 people passed through the enclosure to do their shopping, taste the products and participate in the various events”.
The latest fair was severely restricted due to the coronavirus pandemic and mobility restrictions meant only locals could attend. In December, the event could see many more people attending and enjoying all that Malaga has to offer.
