The discount shopping event Stockazo will take place on Friday 28th & Saturday 29th of November in Arrecife, Lanzarote.
The event was originally planned to be held last weekend 21st & 22nd of November but was postponed until the following one due to the rain alerts. Unfortunately this now clashes with two other main events on the island, the Lanzarote Marathon and the Festival Gastronómico Saborea Lanzarote.
Approximately 80 shops will be participating in the second edition of Stockazo, after the success of the event last year. Discounts of at least 30% must be offered off the original price during the shopping hours of 10:00 – 22:00 on Friday and 10:00 – 14:00 on Saturday. From 14:00 on Saturday there will be the Hora Loca, where shops can increase the discount offers on their goods for a crazy hour.

José María, his wife Dominika and daughter María took us for a tour of their ecological farm in Lanzarote. First we inspected the immaculately clean preparation rooms, which have been added to the farm and were required for their special Consejo Regulador de Agricultura Ecológica (CRAE) status.
Next José María guided us to the seedling area where we learned that everything they grow on the finca originates from read more »
