Organic Stalls, reply: I am responding to Digame rather than the private email so everyone has the information about the organic markets in La Axarquia.
Viveros El Algarrobo, where the very popular organic market was held on Saturdays was sold to new owners last summer. As a result, the market split into two with some stalls going to the new Conviven site by pantano La Vinuela, and others joining the new Benajarafe market in the Florymar garden centre run by the ECA association. (and some stalls take it turns to go to both and can also be found at the Tuesday Trapiche market).
The stalls who went to Conviven are now back at the Viveros El Algarrobo, and Conviven no longer run an organic market. The organic market at Florymar, Benajarafe continues to hold their market every Saturday.
If anyone wants to locate a particular organic product or stall, do contact me directly on rachael1210 @ gmail.com. My name is Rachael Saunders and I started the Viveros El Algarrobo market and am continuing to mentor the market at Benajarafe as part of the association Eco Axarquia, and am very happy to pass information to anyone with regards to locating organic and local products, having collaborated with local organic producers for the last 16 years in La Axarquia. I hope that clarifies things for everyone.  Regards, Rachael. (Thanks for the details. -Ed.)
