Asparagus from Navarra, Artichokes from Tudela, both with I.G.P., beans and other species grow in here as the products of a cuisine that is known for its menestras, stuffed peppers and other vegetable specialties, perfect to eat in Fitero. The most popular meats are the calf, lamb and pork, the last one in the shape of embutidos (sausage).

The rancho of potatoes and meat is a popular dish from the village, and it is celebrated during the Saint Festivities, when it is cooked in front of the public. The empanada de Fitero is usually prepared when the Ascencion is coming. It is a circle piece, stuffed with egg, chorizo and rabbit meat.
