Cabbage Tourism

Cabbage Tourism

While I'm not as convinced as they are that it will catch on, as Jaunted travel blog say, "there are niches for every kind of traveler these days". Cabbage Tourism would certainly provide another alternative to Tenerife's "sun, sea and sand ..." image, but I reckon, this is what happens when you let your "tourist attractions" go to seed! Nevertheless, on behalf of the area, I'm going to claim its place on the "Cabbage Route". Somehow, this doesn't seem half as exciting as the "Almond Flower Route", but cabbages do abound around the perimeters of most fields in this area and the one regional dish that is typical to the area is cabbage pottage or soup. In fact, fruit and vegetable tourists of all types would have a field day (pun intended) around these fertile parts and the produce itself can be seen and savoured weekly at the Sunday Farmers Markets.

See where this picture was taken. [?]
