Tarnow

Local Products Centre

  Rzuchowa 1A      (+48) 603 99 56 10     17 Sep 2019
Located just a few can-kicks down the road (roughly 10km/20mins in the car) from the centre of Tarnów you'll find the Local Products Centre - a family-friendly attraction aimed at promoting a healthy rural lifestyle, supporting local farmers and protecting regional farming traditions, promoting a healthy diet of organic locally-grown crops and food products, protecting the environment and promoting animal welfare. Built on the 2.5 hectare site of a 13th century manor and park, the modern, multi-functional 333 square metre building serves as an educational centre with tastings and workshops on regional cuisine (available in English) and other community classes and programmes, while also hosting exhibits, a gallery, library, seed bank, cafe for sampling the local goods and a shop where you can buy them (organic fruit and produce, honey, handicrafts, etc). There's also an educational garden for kids. If you're flirting with the idea of leaving it all behind to toil in the Polish soil, want to fill your trunk with cheap, delicious veggies, or get the kids to think twice about their daily diet of fast food and Facebook posts, this earnest community initiative might be just the thing for you. Guided tours in English can be arranged by calling +48 608 42 46 60.

If you don't have a car (or tractor or horse-drawn buggy), you can get there by public bus, but be aware that it takes almost an hour; buy a 3.20zł ticket, get on bus 213 at the 'Krakowska - Plac Kościuszki' stop and hop off at 'Rzuchowa - Centrum.'
