On a beautiful day in June I went to the organic farmers’ market organised by Mercatale della Valdelsa in Monteriggioni. More information can be found on Be Tuscan for a Day. It is a wonderful project which brings seasonal agricultural products made by local farmers together and to the people visiting Monteriggioni, Poggibonsi and San Gimignano. I had never been to Monteriggioni before and I absolutely fell in love with it. It is really like stepping back in time, into the Middle Ages. This fortified town has been kept almost completely intact! I really loved exploring this tiny medieval Tuscan town and the lovely organic market.
