February-March: The national exhibition market of the black truffle and the local products of the Valnerina
This gastronomic display has a more than 50 years old tradition. The territory of Norcia is incomparably rich in local and delicious products, but the fame the black truffle could attain makes it the real king of the event.
But the salami and cold pork meats certainly play also an important role as well as every product of the pork butchery. Another protagonist of the exhibition market is indeed the ham Prosciutto di Norcia, marked with the IGP (Indicazione Geografica Protetta) and the result of the antique Norcian craftsmen's experience in manufacturing and conservation of the salami and cold pork meats.
But at Norcia the surprises don't ever finish if we continue the gastronomic parade with the famous lentils Lenticchie di Castelluccio, the excellent cheeses, the spelt, the mushrooms and all other kinds of products offered by the Valnerina and brought out and made appreciated by the town of Norcia.
