The Magro Food Village offers a unique experience in Maltese food-making and crafts. This tour is a great learning experience and loads of fun with the possibility of free tastings of food just as it is made. Visits may include an artisan cheese making workshop, tomato processing factory (when in season) and other Maltese traditional delicacies in the making at the various Savina workshops.

Our tour guide took us to this center on our trip to Gozo. Very nice shop. Very clean, super nice staff, great selection of food, crafts and local drink. We did our fair share of purchasing some great things. Highly recommended.
