Treviglio and Gera d’Adda Earth Market

Treviglio is a town of 30,630 inhabitants in the province of Bergamo. The city is located in the middle Po Valley, about 20 km south of the capital orobico. It rises in the Gera d’Adda (from “gravel of the Adda river”), an area of the Lombard plain between the Adda river to the west, the Serio river to the east and the Bergamo ditch to the north.

The Earth Market is the result of an initiative by the Slow Food Bassa Bergamasca Convivium and a large community of local producers, some of whom are already involved in other Lombardy Earth Markets (especially the Bergamo and Soncino Earth Markets).

Each edition of the market hosts 15 exhibitors and a wide range of products: from fruit and vegetables (try the Melone Retato di Calvenzano Presidio Slow Food and its transformed products) to artisan cheeses, including Fatulì della Val Saviore and Silter di Pascolo. There are also local flours and cereals, artisan sourdough bread, wine, honey, cured meats and many other delicacies.

The market is sponsored by the municipality of Treviglio, the Proloco and Legambiente. The most important collaboration, however, is with the Azienda Bergamasca Formazione di Treviglio (ABF Institute): at each edition, a cooking station is set up for students, who prepare various dishes using the products at the market. The preparations are then served as an aperitif offered free of charge to market users.

The event is located on the inner ring road adjacent to the historic centre. Car parks are available for a fee (inner ring road on which the market is located, underground car park in P.za Setti) and free of charge, with a parking disc, in the streets leading to it.
The city is easily reached by train. At the same time as the Treviglio and Gea d’Adda Earth Markets, every Saturday of the month, the town’s local market is also held (which, however, is not only food-related).
