The market Meet the producers Calendar and
activities


The San Giuliano Terme Earth Market, the third to join the Slow Food network in Tuscany, was launched on June 12, 2011. The market is organized by the San Giuliano Terme Municipality in collaboration with Slow Food Tuscany with support from the Region of Tuscany as part of the project Short Chain: Local Network for the Promotion of Agricultural Products from Tuscany.

The San Giuliano Terme area is historically tied to agriculture, as are neighboring municipalities around Pisa, with soil particularly suited to horticulture and a strong development of this activity since the early ‘900s. Since 1903, San Giuliano and the neighboring village of Pontasserchio have held an annual "market-fair", recovering a tradition started in the eighteenth century and keeping it alive until today, on August 24 and April 28 respectively.

Thirty-five local farms are participating in the Earth Market project, coming primarily from the Province of Pisa, and around 16 of these local producers will attend each market. Among the products on offer are local varieties of fruit and vegetables, as well as cheeses and meats mostly from cattle and rabbits.
The market will be held on the morning of every second Sunday of the month at La Fontina, in the Ghezzano hamlet of the of San Giuliano Terme Municipality, in a small square adjacent to the Carrefour shopping center parking lot. It is easily accessible from major roads (provincial roads, SGC Fi - Pi - Li, highway), entering the city of Pisa and following the signs for Carrefour or La Fontina.
