An event introduced by the Municipal Council in 2012, coinciding with the Diada de Sant Jordi.
It was established with the intention of rounding out the entertainment and festivities offered on the Diada with a food tasting event organized by the restaurants of Olesa. The good response to the first edition resulted in this event being introduced to the Festa Major festival as well.
Since then, the tastings have become a tradition and the number of participating restaurants and visitors has been growing every year. The restaurants offer a range of samples from their menus at accessible prices, and the fact that it coincides with Sant Jordi and with the end of the Festa Major has made it one of the most widely attended and appreciated events on the local calendar.
A new variant of the food sampling began in 2013, coinciding with the celebration of Carnival: the launching of a nighttime tasting of foods made with products prepared by market shopkeepers, which has also proven a big success.
The aim of the tastings is to offer a sample of Olesan cuisine and a forum for the promotion of the restaurants and businesses of Olesa’s Municipal Market.
Olesa de Montserrat is a municipality rich in culture and tradition, located in the foothills of the mountain of Montserrat. Olesa de Montserrat is located in the north of the comarca (county) of Baix Llobregat, in the subcomarca of Montserratí, halfway between Barcelona and the Montserrat Monastery. The natural area of the municipality, with its beautiful and magnificent scenery, is bounded by the Llobregat river and the mountain chains of Sant Salvador de les Espases and Puigventós. Olesa’s roots are markedly agricultural; it is noted in particular for its cultivation of olives of the palomar or Olesan variety, native to the region, from which the famous Olesan oil is extracted.
