Organic Market with a Focus on Honey

Florence’s La Fierucola organic market is offering an expanded version on May 5 – 6 in Piazza Santissima Annunziata from 9 am to 6 pm.  The theme is honey, so expect to find jars of it in different flavors reflecting the Tuscan landscape from clover, acacia, heather, chestnut, thistle and a blend of flowers in addition to beeswax polish and candles.  Beekeepers will be on hand to talk about their profession and there will be workshops for children.

There is a marked decrease in honey production in Italy in recent years with far-reaching consequences:  read here to find out why.

Besides honey, the Fierucola’s vendors will be displaying and selling freshly-baked bread, preserves, cheeses, vegetables, olive oil, ceramics, hand-knit sweaters, all natural cosmetics, soaps and essential oils.
