The Slow Food movement holds an Earth Market every Saturday in the Jardins de les Tres Xemeneies, in the Poble-sec neighbourhood. The market promotes seasonal local produce obtained from traditional methods which respect the environment and are sold at a fair price for customers and producers alike. The main aim of the activity is to shorten the distance between the earth and the meal table.
The market also offers cooking displays by different Slow Food chefs, children’s activities in the Slow Kids section and live music. A series of new proposals is also being prepared (talks, workshops etc.) to add more to the market and transform it into an event which is compatible with all citizens.
