Silves night market | 13 June 2018

ALGARVIAN.LIFE VEGETAL CREAM CHEESE | Launch at Silves Night Market | article by Algarvian.Life editor Mel Ve | The spring sure did seem to drag on with an unusually cold towarmish climate for the beginning of June, which moved to uncomfortably cold in the wind, and when it got overcast, which it did rather frequently this spring… that was until Wednesday 13 June 2018, which saw summer come in with full force.  This also happened to be the day of the Silves night market which has a monthly appearance for 3 months, from June to August.

Heat plus logistical issues made this market challenging, but it was certainly worth it.  Silves Municipality really did a fantastic job of creating an amazing atmosphere, as well as providing a wide variety of traditional and local entertainment.

Beach Farm was located inside the main market hall, which was very colourfully decorated in a floral theme.  The endless flowery accents, lighting and and live performances, turned this historical landmark into a festive delight.

Vegetal Cream Cheese



It was great to see how much people enjoyed our newest product, being ALGARVIAN.LIFE Vegetal Cream Cheese, which is made from a naturally fermented vegetal cream, and contains no colorants, or artificial flavours.  ALGARVIAN.LIFE Vegetal Cream Cheese is available in four different flavours, being Piri Piri, Garlic Herb, Citrus Sage and Honey Mustard.
