An Earth Market is not just a place to buy and sell food.
It is project built around Slow Food’s multidisciplinary idea of food: not only a source of nourishment, but our history and identity, our culture and health, our land and our future. An Earth Market also reminds us that food is a great source of pleasure that can be truly enjoyed when shared with strangers or friends, and it is a way of passing on knowledge and values.
These community-run markets are important social meeting points, where local producers offer healthy, quality food directly to consumers at fair prices and guarantee environmentally sustainable methods. In addition, they preserve the food culture of the local community and contribute to defending biodiversity.
