Olive Oil Market

Markthalle Basel
Saturday, 27 January

Olive oil is a natural product and an important ingredient in today’s health-conscious and gourmet cooking. Together with wine, olive oil is one of the oldest foods and has great importance in the history of the Mediterranean countries. Unfortunately, we often know too little about the olive oils we buy—their origins, treatment, and the composition are kept secret. Almost all oil bottles on the supermarket shelves have flowery descriptions on their labels, but these often only serve to confuse.
The olive oil market at the Alte Markthalle strives to give this liquid gold the attention it deserves. At this special market, you can learn more about olive oil directly from the producers. You can taste top-quality oils and discover for yourself what a good olive oil is all about. Producers from Greece, Italy, and other regions, including Salfit (Palestine), will accompany you on a journey through the Mediterranean. And while you are there, you can also pick up some fresh bread, cheeses, eggs, fruits, vegetables, yoghurt, and many more delicacies at the Markthalle's regular Saturday market that takes place at the same time.
