Sunday is “farmer’s market day” in Greve in Chianti, small borgo in the heart of the Chianti wine area. Here you can find local producers, artisans and one very special historic shop – Falorni Butcher Shop.
Antica Macelleria Falorni is a butcher shop in the area known to pretty much everyone in the area. It’s been around since 1806 so you can imagine these guys know what they’re doing. And if you are looking for traditional cooking – this is the place to get both your local meat & cooking tips.
Their swine are all bred & raised by the Falorni family in San Piero d’Uzzano in Greve in Chianti. Cinta Senese, Large White & Grigio are the 3 types of swine grown by the family to make premium quality pork products, all sold at the Falorni butcher shop.
Keeping to local custom, the family has gained quite a renowned reputation thanks to their philosophy of staying true and connected to their land. This philosophy rings true so much so that they even use Chianti Classico wine in their pork products!
Falorni is also home to a wonderful little bistrot which showcases all of their products with a menu which serves taglieri (cheese & meat boards), fettunte (a type of Tuscan bruschetta), soups, traditional pork & veal dishes and of course sweets & coffee, all at incredibly reasonable prices for absolutely amazing quality. It’s often amazing how low the prices are considering quality in small towns like this.
