Farmers Market




Last Saturday I finally got to the local ‘Mercatale’ Farmers market. It started up last summer but this was the first opportunity that I have had to go. It’s held on the third Saturday morning of the month in the town square in Sovicille. There is a fantastic bread stall, freshly baked with different types of flour, grains and seeds, the foccacia with onions was quite delicious. Seasonal vegetables from the local farmers, artisan cheese and honey, various salumi, including those of the famous ‘Cinta Senese’ pig, sauces of truffles, hot chilli, mushrooms… naturally to sample before purchasing!  There is even a little osteria set up especially for the market, of couse we ate inside… January even here is a little chilly, but during the warmer months there is a little courtyard set up.
