The second weekend in September, the town of Cella in Teruel celebrates its famous Potato Fair, a popular event that enhances the knowledge of this tuber because a potato of great quality is produced in this area, and in large quantities, because they are harvested up to around 3,000 tons in each campaign. The fair also dedicates a wide space to leisure activities. The program of events, in addition to requesting the collaboration of volunteers to peel, wash and cut potatoes, includes very diverse proposals, all related to this product, so appreciated and versatile in the kitchen. Among them is the tasting of the potato omelette and the cooking contest around this essential ingredient. In previous editions succulent recipes with potatoes have been elaborated.

Traditional Aragonese market in Sediles

The city hall of Sediles, and its farmers celebrate a traditional Aragonese market, both with farm and processedproducts, with fairer prices, in which the middlemen are eliminated. Traditionally, the farmers of our towns cultivated and elaborated the products, later taken to the market tosell them themselves for a price considered fair, or to exchange them for the products needed. This simple and effective philosophy is what is intended to be remembered, and in some way, vindicate with the Traditional Aragonese Market taking place in Sediles. This market is intended to help raise,in large numbers of people,awareness and solidarity with farmers, also to understand the proposals and mobilizations that the town makes periodically, and to which we have become accustomed without stopping to think about everything behind it. The celebration of this market varies every year, since it is made to coincide with the dates when the festivities were traditionally held in Sediles, which as in many towns were modified.
