Fill your basket with wholesome food

Category

The most beautiful and flowering month is back. In May, Izola enriches its offer with the farmer's market “Ruba sz moje njive” (Stuff from my field), which allows us to fill our baskets with locally grown fruit, vegetables and other home-grown delicacies from the hinterland of Izola.

This year, spring hasn’t only brought us longer days and awakening nature but also some changes that encouraged us to modify our way of living. Due to various restrictions, networking at the local level and self-supply have grown very strong and our shopping habits have changed. While the world was on hold, it was the local farmers who supplied us with wholesome food. This practice will continue, so we kindly invite you to cultivate the new shopping routine and visit the local farmer’s market “Ruba sz moje njive” after having had your morning coffee.

Fresh produce will be waiting for you every Wednesday and Saturday between 8 am and 1 pm at Drevored 1. maja, near the Agraria store.

The farmer’s market is part of the Kilometer Zero initiative, which encourages local restaurateurs to use local, seasonal produce. When restaurateurs decide to take part in the initiative, they commit to providing at least 80 % of locally-sourced ingredients. It’s likely that you’ll meet chefs of your favourite restaurants while shopping for food at the market.

When buying local produce, you’ll be able to chitchat with Gigliola Vojvoda from Vojvoda Farm with Brigita Barbo from Barbo Farm and with Aldo Ček from Istriana Farm. They will be happy to tell you stories and anecdotes of their farms. On occasion you will also be able to purchase Visit Izola products.

Let the motto of the Zero Kilometre initiative be our guide for purchasing food: “From sea to plate”, or in this case “Froom field to plate.” This way we avoid unnecessary transport, processing of crops with means for preserving their freshness and we obtain quality and satisfaction – that of local farmers and our own.

Striving for local supply of crops means much more than just having fresh food on plates. Supporting local agriculture makes an important contribution to preserving the natural environment. It means nurturing values, knowledge and consolidating local identity.
