The Albinelli Market
Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the city, taste and buy local products, and let yourself be enveloped by the flavors and color.
The Albinelli Market is a lively and welcoming place that we’re sure will win you over. When it’s time for lunch, you have nothing but choice: the downtown area’s many restaurants and trattorias offer typical local dishes, which means a chance to taste, among other things, our famous tortellini, zampone and cotechino (dishes made from a mixture of ground pork flavored with herbs and spices and stuffed into the hollowed-out trotter or lower-leg of a hog), or large flakes of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese seasoned with traditional balsamic vinegar, all of it accompanied by a nice glass of Lambrusco, our sparkling and vivacious local red wine. To finish on a high note, treat yourself to a bensone (a traditional pastry made with flour, milk, eggs, butter, and sugar and sometimes filled with jam), zuppa inglese (a trifle made with sponge cake, a red herbal liqueur, and custard), or almond-flavored amaretti cookies.
