MaOs managed from March to June 2015 the Come Ourense Fair, created by the Ourense City Council through its initiative Come Ourense, with the aim of promoting local food products, both fresh and processed. The fair was on a monthly basis and itinerant: every month was hold in a different space from the county.
The first fair took place in Praza Maior the March 28 from 10 to 14, the second in Ponte Romana the April 25, the third in Rúa Salvador Dalí the May 23 and the fourth in Praza Maior the June 6.
To reinforce the local character of the fairs, when dealing with requests for stands, we’ve established two basic criteria. The first sorts by priority the requests according to the origin of the applicants: 1) persons or companies from the Ourense City Council, 2) from the province, 3) from outside the province. And the second sorts the requests according to the type of sale: 1) direct sales (in this case, who sell at least 60% of its own products), 2) resale or other. The mission of these criteria is to facilitate participation in the fair of local people or companies. Extended rules of participation and membership: http://qr.net/normasfeira
