Yesterday I visited Mercato della Terra, the most popular farmers' market in Bologna, organized by Slow Food.
It takes place every Monday evening (in summer) or every Saturday morning (other seasons) in the courtyard of Cinema Lumière. It's a really wonderful location for the best farmers' market i've ever seen, only second to Borough Market in London. If you enjoy our Bologna Food Tour on Saturday you can choose to visit together Mercato della Terra to know more about the producers, the tradition and the unique characteristics of this market.
I could spend a lot of enthusiastic words about the flavours, the aroma, the colours and the smiles of the old ladies buying flowers, but i think that this time this gallery will work better.
