Mercato della terra di Bologna

Saturday, a great day to go to Bologna’s Earth Market. Every Saturday morning the courtyard of the Lumière Cinema Bologna hosts its particular Borough Market.

Organized by the Slow Food Association (more information here ), a non profit org aiming at countering the rise of fast food and a fast lifestyle in general. This initiative aims at bringing people together and making them more sensitive to matters such as green economy and sustainability. They sell products from the region at fare prices, with information about each particular food and its origins. Everything is Km 0 and Bio Bio Bio.

It is also a great place to have lunch. Whether you want grilled fish, Tigelle breads filled with all kinds of meat or Buffalo burgers it is all there and all DELICIOUS.

There are also wines and beers from local producers. Chairs and tables are provided in the courtyard.
