Fresh, local flavours

We can boast of a rich, living ´larder´ close to the centre of the city. Our fertile coutryside producers grain for bread and beer, potatoes, carrots, beetroots, cabbages, apples, cucumbers and fine lettuces; and there are greenhouses full of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and flowers.

Our local farms raise ducks, geese and turkeys, as well as pigs, sheep and cattle, and we get fish and crayfish from the archipelago. The abundance of the naturally marshy land is impossible to describe in full. The gourmet has much to choose from: includes meat, fish, rooth and other vegetables, mushrooms and even beestings.

Local food from the Salo region is available at Salo Marketplace from 7 am to 3 pm on weekdays between 2 May and 31 August, and on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 7 am to 2 pm at other times of the year. Grocery stores in the area also stock local food.
