In Arezzo, an important building dating back to the mid-19th Century hosts a permanent farmers' and producers' market on a daily basis, including Sundays: the Mercato delle Logge del Grano, which showcases the area's excellent food and wine products over an area of around 400 square metres. All the typical Zero-km products and raw materials are local, guaranteeing fresh, seasonal products and respect for local culture.
The exclusive location characterises another significant reality of the city of Arezzo: in fact, the Mercatale sotto i Portici takes place under the ancient porticos of Via Roma, in the heart of the city centre; every first Saturday of the month twelve Arezzo companies will be present with their seasonal products such as Casentino cold cuts, fresh and mature cheeses from Valdarno and Valtiberina, sweet and savoury baked goods from Valtiberina, jams, juices with seasonal fruit, artisan chocolates, nuts, pulses, flours and even honey, truffles and vegetables.
After the great success of the monthly market, a permanent covered market was introduced in 2008 in Viale Diaz - from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays - offering local produce, vegetables and cereals, cheeses, typical cold cuts and a wide selection of wines and extra virgin olive oil.
Producers from the Valtiberina and other areas of the Province of Arezzo exhibit their natural and fresh products every third Saturday of the month in Piazza Torre di Berta in Sansepolcro during the San Sepolcro Market. Fresh and matured cheeses made from raw sheep's, cow's and goat's milk, as well as organic ricotta and raveggiolo cheeses, artisan cured meats cured using natural methods and other typical sausages are just some of the products on display at this market. Bread, artisan baked goods and precious undergrowth products such as mushrooms, truffles and chestnuts can easily be found in this market.
