Zejt iz-Zejtun is Malta's celebration of the olive-picking season, taking place in the town of Zejtun (meaning fruit of the olive trees) on September 25th and 26th .
While farmers parade the annual harvest on carts, visitors can sample a range of olive-based products. Agricultural products, tools and local art are exhibited at a fair set up to resemble an old country village and there are also plenty of delicacies made with the little green gems available for tasting.
Going beyond olive oil, Zejt iz-Zejtun promotes the versatility of olives, their goodness and their proper cultivation.
