Fare La Spesa Al Mercatino Biologico

Number 64 on the list of things to do is shopping at the farmers market here in Bologna. Every Saturday morning for a few hours, all the local farmers gather in the little piazza behind the Cinema Lumière to participate in the Slow Food Earth Market: From the Earth to the Table.

Other great markets in Bologna include central Quadrilatero, the Mercato delle Erbe,and Eataly - which are open everyday (except Sundays), but get there in the morning before everything's gone!

And for those in New York City, Eataly (Turin's famous indoor farmers market) will be opening up a giant market this summer with 80% of the products being imported directly from Italy!

According to the release:
"Giant foodie mega-market Eataly has its first piece of signage up at 200 Fifth Ave. The 60,000 square foot space will contain all kinds of retail plus a wood-fired pizza and pasta bar, a cheese and salami counter, a steak restaurant, a vegetarian restaurant, a wine shop, a bakery, a crudo and seafood bar, and a classic Italian bar serving gelato, espresso, and wine. On the roof will be a 4,500 square foot open-air rooftop beer garden serving pizza and sausages."

Buon Appetito!
