National Salami Day
Eat salami, buy salami and learn to make salami at this celebration of cured sausage at Preston Market.
With its wealth of European stalls, eateries and delis, Preston Market is like a culinary wonderland for salami-lovers. And when National Salami Day rolls around on Saturday, September 7, we can't think of a much better place to locate yourself.
The historic marketplace is celebrating the occasion with a one-day program of offerings and specials to delight your inner Italophile and reignite your love of the humble salami. You'll find salami specials at Slavonija, Lemnos and Farinacci Delis, embark on a salami tasting journey at Gerry's Deli, and even give vegan salami a whirl, with tastings of a plant-based version at Rhubarb Rhubarb Organics.
Then, once you're done with the eating, you can have a crack at the making, as Sara Grazia from Sausages Made Simple guides a free salami-making demonstration from 11am. She'll run you through everything from meat selection, to maturing, and will be doling out plenty of tastings along the way.
Still hungry? You can wrap up your day with a salami-topped pizza, from resident pizzerias Peter's or Vinnie's.
