BelOrta vegetable and fruit auction

BelOrta is the largest cooperative auction in Europe and well worth a visit. It is a hive of activity, handling up to 4,000 tons of vegetables on an auction day. An experienced company guide will outline the history of auctions and BelOrta in particular.

You will learn how the auction system works, track vegetables as they make their way from market gardener to local supermarket and you will experience for yourself the flurry of activity around the auction clocks.
