Garden to table
Slovenia is a land of gardens. Nearly every Slovenian has at least a vegetable and herb garden whether they live in the countryside or in a town or city. Home-grown food tastes richer, and top chefs are well aware of this as they join the garden to table movement. See for yourself - try homemade delicacies. Ecological farms, farmer’s markets, ecological shops and agricultural shops across Slovenia offer not only fresh vegetables and fruit, but also other homemade products and home-grown produce.
An authentic taste at tourist farms
If you want to taste authentic Slovenian flavours, visit one of the countless tourist and visitor farms. Pluck juicy fruit right from the tree, taste some vegetables straight from the garden, enjoy a nice cup of fresh milk, sample meat delicacies and indulge in the freshly-baked brick oven bread that the hospitable locals will provide for you. Local winemakers will also be happy to pour you a glass of the local wine.
Let’s go to the market
Markets are usually the very heart of a town. They are bustling with life and offer a wide array of typical local flavours. Markets like that can be found all across Slovenia. The largest and the most colourful market is the Ljubljana Central Market. Healthy and local food is also available in many boutique shops offering organic and natural products that can be found in numerous Slovenian towns.
