So what‘s it all about?

Italia in Piazza was established in 2006. One organisation owned & managed by Simon Faro. That’s me! I provide a professional, authentic and unique market event experience.

I source food from producers in Italy and bring it right to your doorstep.

My operation is unique. I am renowned for my efficient and effective set up, set down and event management processes.

Many others are and have tried to imitate my operation. Fine by me, my creation will never be replicated however hard they all try! The only way to secure my Market is to contact me personally. If you don’t book through me then it’s not my Market!


Acropoli di Puglia: Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Martina Franca in Puglia.

Casearia Arnoldi: Cheese.

Galletti: Balsamic Vinegars.

Rivoltini: Torrone (soft nougat).




Frying pan, generous drizzle of quality extra virgin olive oil and some hand crushed garlic. Gently sizzle then add quality (about 2 tins) peeled plum tomatoes, sea salt and pepper. Keep on medium heat all time it takes to boil water (salted) and cook penne rigate (quality brand). Cook pasta 3/4 of time it says on packet.

Drain pasta and add to sauce. Add ridiculous amount of fresh basil and chilli.

Eat with hard bread and easy drinking red wine.


“Ricordo molto nitidamente quella mattina di primavera che mi svegliò un intensissimo odore di caffè, ma era un odore molto forte e fuori dal normale, mi alzai e mi recai in cucina dove vidi la mia nonna con il suo bel fazzoletto in testa una gran padella sul fuoco e questi chicchi di caffè marroncini chiaro che tostavano e emanavano un profumo meraviglioso, quel giorno scoprii la tostatura del caffè e capii che cucinare era un’arte”

Quality & Authenticity

In Italy the quality of food is a priority.

By tradition only the best and most authentic of produce is acceptable.

This means healthier and natural ingredients are used such as gluten free salumi and breads with no flour improver

All of my produce falls within this category so you can buy with confidence.
