Roquetas de Mar gastronomy

The gastronomy of Roquetas de Mar is characterised by its offer of products from a fishing maritime area, highlighting the quality of its fish, which contribute to the preparation of dishes such as "fish soup" of Arab origin, as well as the "arroz aparte" (side rice), unique in the whole province.

"La Moraga" becomes a fiesta with ancestral tradition of old groups of seamen who used to meet on the extensive beaches and which has now turned into a social ludic act, where families come from all over the province the 29th of December to eat fish and meat around fires and barbacues.

Roquetas de Mar is considered the Market Garden of Europe, due to its extra-early fruit and vegetables these products are consumed in the town by preparing exquisite dishes such as our grilled vegetables, among others.
