The Alba White Truffle World Market is the largest international exhibition of truffles coming from the Piedmontese hills of Langhe, Roero and  Monferrato. Every day, thousands of batches of truffles, freshly picked, are displayed and sold by the "trifolao" themselves. Before the market opens to the public, in order to guarantee quality and secure purchases, each truffle is checked by the specific "Quality Commission", which is available to customers throughout the Fair’s duration with the "Costumer Information Desk" function. At the Alba White Truffle World Market all truffles weighing more than 10 grams are sold in a numbered bag giving a warranty and the right to return and exchange whenever the truffle is not satisfactory


Thanks to the AlbaQualità exposition, the Alba White Truffle World Market is the place to meet and experience the Piedmontese gastronomic excellence. Every year, AlbaQualità selects over a hundred exhibitors from all over the region, especially, from the Langhe and Roero. The exhibition stands offer a comprehensive and complete overview of the gastronomic, vine-growing and wine-producing quality of the area, with particular attention to crafts and innovative productions. Among the thousands of products in tasting and for sale you can find wines, spirits, liqueurs, cheeses, meats, fresh and dried pasta, bakery products, traditional sweets, chocolate, vegetables, products containing Nocciole Piemonte IGP (Piedmontese hazelnuts), Castagne di Cuneo IGP (Cuneo chestnuts), special flours, mushrooms as well as - of course - truffles.


Inside the Alba White Truffle World Market a specific area is reserved for catering and tasting of the renowned wines from Langhe and Roero. Here you can  sample raditional dishes made with fresh ingredients and raw materials displayed and sold in the exhibition booths - truffle included - designed to accompany and enhance the flavours of the White Truffle of Alba. The wine-tasting area, operated by the AIS sommeliers (the Italian Sommelier Association), is located in the Grande Enoteca of the Langhe and Roero, an area designed to offer a sample of the extraordinary wine heritage of the territory.

Throughout the autumn period the White Truffle of Alba can be purchased in the city's specialty shops.

All dogs are allowed into the Truffle Market!
