Market with Simonetta

For the first day Simoneta took me to the big market (fish vendors closed on Mondays, open from 7:30am until 3pm Monday-Saturday). We shopped and wandered. I oohed and ahhhed at the selection and quantity. We bought some burrata .... a fresh cows milk cheese (oh, what a taste .. it was like solid cream. It should be outlawed or taxed), some anchovies and some bread. Here is just a tiny part of the Mercato Central.

Here is a selection of pigs heads and porcini mushrooms.

Then there were the hams

I took altogether too many pictures. This will probably continue.

If you want to see the whole collection of pictures taken at the market take a look here
