Period: November

The national market exhibition of truffle and quality agri-food products was born in 1987 by the will of the then Monte Peglia and Selva di Meana Mountain Community (today the Onat Mountain Community) to enhance and promote one of the most gastronomic products important in the area of the park STINA (Territorial System of Environmental Naturalistic Interest): the truffle. Traditionally, it takes place on the second weekend of November, coinciding with the feast of San Martino patron of the city of Fabro. Since 2010 it has been managed directly by the Municipality of Fabro which every year surprises its visitors with ever-changing news and events.

From that distant 1987, 30 editions have passed, between difficult years and years of extraordinary results. In the context of the ancient village, visitors will have the opportunity to rediscover forgotten flavors: the smell of roasted chestnuts, the scent of wine and the unmistakable aroma of the truffle; aromas and flavors mixed artfully for an extraordinary weekend of good taste.

Today the exhibition has more than 15,000 visitors over 50 stands of local and national producers and more than 14 truffle dealers from all Italian regions and is now a regular appointment for lovers of genuine products and good food. One of the highlights not to be missed on the occasion of the exhibition is the creation of the largest truffle omelette in the world which takes place on Saturday afternoon: a giant iron pan of two and a half meters in diameter that contains inside more than 2,000 eggs and 30 kg of Fabro truffle.
