Italian market PORTOFINO e... CASSIS
Cassis - Gastronomy - In November - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free
Building on the popular success of previous editions, the City of Cassis and the Italian Chamber of Commerce for France in Marseille (CCIFM) renew for the 8th consecutive year their partnership to install in our village a "mercato" Italian style.
During a long weekend, our traditional "Italian village" is installed on the square Baragnon - transformed for the occasion into a real Piazzetta - where all the ingredients of the Italian lifestyle are offered.
In honor of our sister city, this edition of "Portofino e ... CASSIS" will bring together thirty craftsmen and Italian producers who offer their specialties: gastronomy of course widely present with parmesan, panettone, the Baci di cunese, the wines of Piemont, the sparkling Prosecco and wine from Portofino.
All bestsellers of the Riviera are also honored with shawls, the shearling, leather goods, gloves and fashion accessories made of Italian fur.
Entertainment, aperitifs and musical atmospheres punctuate this market.
