Malpensata Earth Market in Bergamo

The Malpensata Earth Market was inaugurated in November 2020 and is the second to be set up in the city of Bergamo. This new market also stems from the desire of the local Slow Food Bergamo convivium to encourage the dissemination and knowledge of local products and producers. This objective is also in line with the goals set by the city’s Food Policy Table, in which Slow Food Bergamo participates together with many other local bodies concerned with the sustainable and environmental aspects of agriculture in all its aspects.

The Malpensata market takes place in the homonymous district of Bergamo, about 20 minutes’ walk from the city centre. Historically, the Malpensata square has always hosted the weekly municipal market, which was then moved to another location. The new, small market was strongly supported by the Malpensata neighbourhood committee, together with the inhabitants and shopkeepers.

The idea behind the market is to create a new service that will be an opportunity for the discovery, dissemination and promotion of local products with a short supply chain, but also a place to meet and discuss, focusing on the people of the neighbourhood and their stories. The space will host 10 exhibitors: producers and artisans from the Cremona, Brescia and Bergamo areas who will bring excellent artisan and controlled supply chain bread, vegetables from organic and fair-trade crops, still and sparkling wines, honey, jams, cured meats and raw milk cheeses (including stracchino all’antica delle Valli Orobiche, a Slow Food Presidium).
The market was born with the foundation of the Slow Food Community, which was joined by producers, volunteers from the Slow Food Bergamo Convivium and local residents.
Bergamo’s Malpensata Market is easy to reach, a 10-minute walk from the railway and bus station. There is ample parking nearby.
