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.

Festivaldelgusto September 2014

This year the Festivaldelgusto was again held in the Le Marche region of eastern Italy, this time at the historic venue of the Castello de Monterado near the beautiful Adriatic resort of Senigallia. We were determined to build on the success of the first Festival in Italy in 2013 so this year we decided to hold the event at the Castello as we knew this beautiful venue well and were also encouraged and supported by the enthusiasm of the owner Orlando Rodano to hold our event there.
The Castello di Monterado is a perfect place to hold events and is a stunning venue situated in the small village of Monterado which was founded in 1267, it is about 15 km from the Adriatic coast and the beautiful seaside resort town of Senigallia.
The weather in Italy this year has not been very good with storms, a great deal of rain and high winds on and off over the spring and summer, indeed only a few days before the event there were very high winds and storms on the coast which had done a lot of damage …

Festivaldelgusto works closely with many food and drink producers both in Italy and also in the UK with the aim of  promoting them and their produce to a wider public and as part of this activity we now also cooperate closely with the International Slow Food organisation in both these countries.
We are pleased that at the next Festivaldelgusto in Le Marche, Italy on Septmber 27th that as well as having over twenty wine and food producers present we will also have Slow Food Marche, Slow Food Ancona and Conero, Slow Food Anglia from the UK and hopefully Slow food Holland take part.
Slow Food Marche has established close links to Slow Food Anglia as they both contain large fishing communities within the regions they represent and Festivaldelgusto is part of the structure they will use to hold tours, events and workshops in their respective countries.
Festivaldelgusto is also one of the main supporters of Slow Food Anglia events which they hold throughout the east of England in the UK, th…
