Time Out says
Fine legumes, delicate wines and the best seeds for growing your own calçots are a tiny sample of the diverse, high-quality products you'll find there
Can Costabella is one of those places loved by practical people because everything, absolutely everything, that they sell is essential for daily life. It's true - fine legumes, delicate wines and the best seeds for growing your own 'calçots' (a type of Catalan onion) for the coming year really are all things that no one should have to go without. They started by selling garlic, and today it's a high-quality farm shop that sells online and also has a range of renowned wines. On their website they occasionally post details of special deals, but a visit to their magnificent space in the village of Mata, very close to Banyoles, is well-merited. An old industrial warehouse has been converted into an unpretentious designer shop where you can find everything from anise to make 'ratafia' (a herbal liquor produced locally) to exclusive brands of food for your puppy.
