Online showcooking with Verónica Asensio

The severense chef Verónica Asensio returns to the "Feira Nacional do Mirtilo" to present two recipes where blueberry is a featured ingredient.
This year, and due to the situation we are going through, the showcooking will be held in digital format, and can be followed for free on Saturday, the 26th, at 11.30 am, at www.capitaldomirtilo.pt and www.facebook.com/capitaldomirtilo.

Technical lecture on the "mercado do mirtilo"

Within the scope of the "Feira Nacional do Mirtilo", on Saturday, at 2.30pm, a free participation webinar will be held with the theme: “Mercado do Mirtilo”.
Knowing that the consumption of blueberries is growing worldwide, as well as its production, the search for new markets and the consolidation of existing ones, it becomes an increasingly important mission that must not be neglected throughout the entire sector.
It is therefore important to know the opportunities and trends in the blueberry market, a fruit for which the consumer is now more aware of its health benefits.
It is important to check our country's reputation in the international market, and what guarantees for the future, because we know however that producing is not enough, much more is needed, always with a focus on quality, freshness and flavor of the fruit, so that can conquer and retain markets.
This webinar intends to address pertinent issues related to the “Mercado do Mirtilo”.
You can attend and participate by exposing your questions, this Saturday, June 26, at 2.30 pm, through the website www.capitaldomirtilo.pt and www.facebook.com/capitaldomirtilo.

National fair of the Blueberry - 26 to 27 June in Sever do Vouga

The National Blueberry Fair is back!
On the last weekend of June, 26th and 27th, Sever do Vouga will once again host the National Blueberry Fair. This year, in a smaller format due to restrictions due to the pandemic and with all the safety regulations in force, but with the quality of the fruit and its derivatives that the Blueberry Capital has already got us used to! We are waiting for you!

Visit the Fair safely

Feira Nacional do Mirtilo will comply with all safety standards determined by the General Directorate of Health.
The use of a mask is mandatory throughout the venue, and hand disinfection is also mandatory upon entry. Visitors must maintain social distance and circulate through the corridors marked on the Fair grounds.
Come and taste the quality of Sever do Vouga blueberry and its derivatives, in complete safety!

Free blueberry picking for the whole family

The organization once again promotes the “Panha do Blueberry”, an activity aimed at the whole family.
The “Apanha do Mirtilo” will take place on the 26th and 27th, at 11 am and 5 pm, at the Small Fruits Experimental Field. The activity is free to participate, but subject to prior registration and limited seating.
Participants can experience how to harvest blueberries under the guidance of a technician. In the end, they can take home the picked fruit, at a lower price than that practiced in the market.
Applications can be made to the email geral@feiradomirtilo.pt, indicating name, number of participants, desired date and time and contact information.

13th “Feira Nacional do Mirtilo” takes place on June 26th and 27th in a format adapted to the pandemic

The National Blueberry Fair is back in the Urban Park of Vila de Sever do Vouga on the 26th and 27th of June, in a format adapted to the reality in which we live, organized by the Municipality of Sever do Vouga.
The 13th edition of this event will have a different dynamic from the previous ones, in order to comply with all the standards recommended by the DGS. Thus, the 2021 edition will only take place during the last weekend of June, running between 10 am and 8 pm. Entrance is free but controlled for the safety of all visitors. The use of a mask will be mandatory, as well as hand hygiene at the entrance and compliance with the circulation circuits defined by the organization.
As usual, visitors can purchase and taste the delicious Sever do Vouga blueberry and all its derivatives such as jams, liqueurs, sweets, ice cream, infusions, among other delicacies, from the two dozen exhibitors.
This year, the National Blueberry Fair will combine the face-to-face component of the event with online activities. In order to avoid concentrations of visitors, the organization removed night entertainment from the program and opted for street entertainment in the event space and in the center of the village. For security reasons, there will be no children's area and showcookings and technical lectures will be held online. One of the activities that remains is the picking of blueberries whose entries will be limited.
In this 13th edition, the Sever do Vouga City Council chose to invite only producers and artisans from the municipality to exhibitors. Aware of the difficulties that the pandemic also caused in these areas of activity, the municipality decided not to charge any amount this year to exhibitors. Another tool that the Municipality is developing to support blueberry producers and artisans in the municipality is an online platform where they can put their products for sale, available at www.capitaldomirtilo.pt.
For António Coutinho, Mayor of Sever do Vouga, it was imperative for our local economy to hold this national fair again, albeit in a smaller and more limited format due to the pandemic. The mayor also refers that the chamber is at the forefront in supporting local producers and the exemption from occupancy rates is a clear sign of this policy by its executive.
On June 26th and 27th, the Blueberry Capital will have available to the visitor the fruit and derivatives with the same quality as always and in total safety.
