There is a Farmer’s Deli in Attard where you can browse organic food alongside artisan pottery
Ingrid is a passionate and talkative farming enthusiast who launched an organic food shopping experience at Villa Bologna that is unlike anything we have ever seen.
his little shop Farmer’s cold cuts this is where artisanal ceramics meet organic shopping. You’ll find Malta’s oldest pottery (and oldest potter) alongside organic, fair-trade foods that date back to the farmer who cultivated them. And when it comes to food, Ingrid does the tracing.
“Here at Farmer’s Deli we sell food products and we know the producers personally,” enthusiastic Ingrid told Lovin Malta. “The concept even extends to ceramics, as buyers can see the artists themselves at work.”
The little store started out as an online website, but it quickly took off and grew into something much bigger.
It’s not hard to notice the pride in her voice for what she has accomplished. His store started three years ago as online shop (it’s still operational, by the way), where people could order organic produce and have it delivered to their homes.
Ingrid provides her customers with the same standard of products you will find on her website, but through a whole new experience. “The best revelation from this store for me was that these little things are so sought after and loved. The personalized service and curated items we carry have encouraged those who walked into our store to ask questions and even talk to the artists who make the ceramics. Time slows down in this shop.
All products sold at Farmer’s Deli are fair trade. “You know exactly who you are helping,” Ingrid beamed. “So if you buy rice, you know where the rice has been grown and what the producers are doing with the money. You will also know that you will be helping small communities that are paid fairly.
You’ll also find Malta’s oldest potter at Farmer’s Deli
Aldo Cremona started out as an artisan potter after the end of World War II, and is still very active in the trade. Aldo is 85 years old and has been involved in pottery for over 60 years. Today, he passes on his knowledge to the most recent addition of pottery; an MCAST graduate.
Villa Bologna hosted the Farmer’s Deli last October
Villa Bologna has been around for 250 years and opened at Farmer’s Deli last October. The charcuterie’s love for organic food and their willingness to marry their concept with niche handcrafted ceramics go well with the aesthetic of Villa Bologna.
The Farmer’s Deli at Villa Bologna is a unique store that is certainly worth a visit. The boutique is open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. You can also visit agriculturistsdelimalta.com to order some of their food packages and have them delivered right to your door.
