The Fondazione Castello di Padernello has established this project to celebrate the region's food and wine traditions, and will host the Earth Market eleven times a year. Slow Food Bassa Bresciana Convivium is the principle partner and selected the producers based on the association's cultural, social and environmental approach to Italian food heritage and knowledge. The project is backed through the sponsorship of the Banca Popolare di Vicenza and contributions from the Fondazione Cariplo Foundation, the Fondazione della Pianura Bresciana and the Fondazione Dominato Leonense e Cassa Padana, all of which have long demonstrated their attentiveness and sensitivity towards this region and its culture.

The initial "good, clean and fair" farmers' market that was established at the Castello di Padernello evolved into an Earth Market® with the aim of increasing awareness of the products of the territory. It seeks to promote the rediscovery, in the charming environs of Padernello castle, of farming traditions that are unaltered through time and respectful of the environment, promoting real local flavors and good honest produce. Earth Markets® are farmers' markets created according to guidelines that follow the Slow Food philosophy. They are managed collectively and serve as a community meeting points where local producers can offer their high-quality products directly to consumers at fair prices and guarantee sustainable production methods for the environment. In sum, they preserve the food culture of local communities and contribute to the protection of biodiversity.


At Padernello Earth Market it is possible to rediscover the real tastes and high quality products of the region - cheeses and cured meats, honey, vegetables, preserves, oils, wine, bread and other baked goods, pastas and beers. Shoppers buy these products directly from the grower/maker, building relationships of mutual trust and respect between consumers and producers and strengthening the local food system.
