Maltese Produce in Summer

Maltese ProduceFresh Maltese Produce

​Discover fresh and locally grown produce

After the rain comes the sun, and after our brief wet winters, so the sun shines on Malta for the better part of 6 months! The constant sunshine on Malta and Gozo allows our crops to flourish and produce some very special treats that are only available in summer.

Our warm climate brings with it fresh and locally grown produce such as figs, peaches, prickly pears and aubergines.  While some tropical fruits have to be shipped in, such gems are grown, cut and sold locally, providing ripe beautiful fruit on a daily basis. If you’d like to sample our fresh goods, restaurants all over the islands take advantage of our local produce, so be sure to ask your server about any daily specials. 

If you’d like to get your hands on any locally grown produce, we cannot recommend the Malta Farmer’s Market enough. Found in Ta’ Qali daily from early morning to early afternoon, the Framer’s Market boasts some of the islands’ best, freshest and naturally grown produce. While fresh fruit and vegetables are the main attraction at the market, the merchants are also likely to have a number of Maltese delicacies such as goat’s cheese, also known as ġbejniet, sundried tomatoes, honey, and bigilla, a garlicy bean dip. A number of fish hawkers are usually at the market, selling their latest summer catch, which typically includes swordfish, lampuki, and sea bream.

Go ahead and visit the Ta Qali Farmer’s Market and get a first hand look at Malta’s freshest produce.
