Sometimes I wonder if my brain is running slowly because of all the new information it is processing but I have to tell you that it was only today that I realised what the name means – ECO is ecologic and GRA is Granollers!
It is organised by some of the shops in the street and the aim is to focus on anything that comes under the umbrella of ‘alternative’.
I like that the stalls are not all the same. Normally here in Granollers the street fiestas are organised by the Council and they have a corporate feeling. All the materials used are identical and only the products and the faces are different. But the ECO-GRA has a more creative and chaotic feeling. It is more higgelty-piggelty which of course as a British person, I like.
Last night we had burgers and beer from the ecological food cooperative (vegetarian as well as beef and pork). This afternoon I had mint tea and sweet cakes from the middle eastern tea-room stall and tonight when we go to watch an exhibition of Lindy Hop by Big Potters Swing, I hope to have falafels. In London or Penzance the presence of vegetarian or different food wouldn’t seem worth mentioning but here in Granollers it is exciting!
