Salento is a region gifted with an amazing variety of fruits, and vegetables, and a history of their traditional preparations to preserve fragrances and tastes. The area is home to a growing number of farms producing fruit and vegetables preserves and jams, baked goods, pasta, cheese, meats, wine, olive oil, and honey. Gallipoli is very well known for its fishing tradition, and for being the best place in Salento to eat fish, with a local variety of shrimps and oysters.

It is relatively easy to find these typical products in local markets and deli stores, and to taste them in the restaurants of the area.
