Mezza Campagna Organic Market in Senigallia, Italy

Festival del gusto is all about getting small artisan Italian organic and biodynamic producers together to hold tastings, workshops and talks in a convivial setting and atmosphere, which also allows for some socialising at the same time as well.
The ethos of Festival del Gusto means that we also spend time on promoting and marketing the same artisan producers both in Italy and in the UK, through events, festivals and markets. So we are pleased that our good friend and associate Andrea Tomassetti has now been instrumental in the setting up of a new type of market in the beautiful Adriatic resort of Senigallia in the Le Marche region of Italy.
The market will focus on organic food, including olive oils, natural products, fruits and vegetables, marmalades and preserves, and will be open to all small organic local Marche producers who wish to take part. Link to their Facebook Page
The first of these innovative organic markets is to be held this Saturday just outside of the centro storico of Senigallia and close to the big UCI Cinema complex and Marco Polo shopping centre and will run from 10 am until 6pm.

Festival del Gusto ha come scopo il mettere insieme piccoli produttori biologici e biodinamici Italiani per la realizzazione di degustazioni, laboratori e conferenze in un'atmosfera conviviale e di scambio di idee.
L'ethos del Festival del Gusto ci porta anche a spendere molto tempo nella promozione e marketing degli stessi produttori tanto in Italia che nel Regno Unito tramite eventi, festivals e mercatini. Quindi siamo il nostro amico e associato Andrea Tomassetti sia riuscito nella realizzazione di un mercatino nella città costiera di Senigallia nelle Marche.
Il mercato si concentrerà nel raggruppamento di produttori biologici e biodinamici includendo olio, rimedi naturali, frutta e verdura, marmellate e conserve, e sarà aperto a tutti i produttori marchigiani che vorranno aderire. Facebook Page
Il primo mercatino, frutto di questo innovativo progetto, si terrà questo Sabato appena fuori il centro storico di Senigallia di fronte alla multisala UCI ed al centro commerciale Marco Polo dalle 10 della mattina fino alle 6 del pomeriggio.

This organic market is just another aspect of the work by committed producers and farmers who are trying to bring their superb produce to a wider public as well as a means of helping support small producers at this time of austerity in Italy and indeed throughout most of Europe.
The organic, biodynamic and natural movements have all suffered in recent years as the food buying public had less to spend each month, but it is hoped that this trend can and will be reversed through the setting up of real local markets such as this one in Senigallia.
We are sure that this will be the start of a successful summer for all involved with the Mezza Campagna market and we at Festival del gusto will be keen supporters of this initiative and other similar projects as they unfold in the future.

Questo mercatino biologico è uno dei tanti risultati del lavoro e della dedizione che produttori ed agricoltori compiono per cercare di portare il loro eccellenti prodotti ad un pubblico più vasto possibile così come cercare di aiutare i piccoli produttori in un periodo di austerità per l'economia Italiana ed europea in generale.
I movimenti biologico e biodinamico hanno entrambi sofferto il mercato negli ultimi anni in quanto il pubblico ha sempre meno potere d'acquisto, ma si è ottimistici nell'arrivo dell'inversione di mercato tramite la realizzazione di mercatini locali come questo in Senigallia che promuovano la vendita dal produttore al consumatore.
Siamo sicuri che questo sarà l'inizio di un' estate di successo per tutti coloro che sono coinvolti con il mercato Mezza Campagna e noi di Festival del Gusto supporteremo attivamente questa attività così come progetti simili che si presenteranno in futuro.

Malta Food Event in December

Festivaldelgusto are very pleased to be working on an exciting new event in Malta this December held together with MCA, the Mediterranean Culinary Academy and several Slow Food groups from Italy and other Mediterranean countries. We have been planning to hold an organic and sustainable food event in Valletta the capital of Malta since the Slow Food Mediterranean conference in Valletta last October.
The event will mainly be aimed toward promoting small artisan producers from around the Mediterranean region as well as representatives from many of the countries taking part. During the day there will be a series of workshops, talks and pop up street food stands as well as a dedicated kitchen where chefs can prepare dishes which are typical of their home countries.
It is hoped that the event can be held outside in the streets close to the beautiful Hastings Gardens, but if this is not possible because of the weather in December then it will be relocated to an indoor venue in another part o…
