Having been to Javea a couple of times by now I thought we had pretty much experienced everything there is to be experienced in this area by now, but even now there are still things to do during our trips that we haven’t done before!
Jesus Pobre (tranlsates into poor Jesus in English) is a little town right next to Javea and every Sunday the people in the surrounding areas and their small businesses set up a amazing market. Everything is produced locally. There are farmers, butchers and bakers plus lots of other little stands selling amazing things. There is food to be had and live music to listen to. The atmosphere is fantastic. If I lived in this area I would buy all my my fruit and veg at markets like these. Everything looked beautiful. There was a stand selling their own grown almonds! Very exotic to a Northern European!
I had a lovely avocado and something sandwich and then Jamie and I shared a wrap. We also got a butternut squash cake to take with us as Jamie’s mum said baking with pumpkin, or calabaza is very popular, she’d never tried it herself. I was very intrigued to try it but I can’t say I was the biggest fan. I’m glad I tried it anyway!
Unfortunately we couldn’t stay for very long as the guys were going to a football game and we need both cars to get everyone home. I’m hoping we will be able to squeeze in a less rushed visit when we’re back next time!
