Thursday is market day here. What to go check it out?
The streets are packed, rain or shine, hot or frigid. The markets are one of the things that I love most about living in an Italian city.
People get their shopping done at the market, but it's also fun to just see what you stumble on.
Yea, even underwear. Really good all cotton underwear actually, as market doesn't always mean bargain prices. Sometimes it means just finding things that you normally can't in the city.
Notice the woman in the back wearing her full fur coat. Fur coats are for everyday wear here. I've even seen women biking in their full length furs.
This guy was selling old frames, but I loved the EuropeAmerica print.
Of course there is food. In addition to cheese you also find your fruit and vegetables, honey vendors, rotisserie chickens, sausage, fries, and fresh fish stands. I usually pick up a chicken so I don't have to cook dinner Thursday night.
This is where I buy my shoes. She's the only place in town that carries 42s. Good quality and good prices... Woo hoo!
I really like these colorful dish towels. I'm kind of into things that have Italian words written on them.
The same stand sells Espresso sets. Oh they have all manner of housewares... you just have to push over the old ladies to get to it
There are also about a dozen different plant stands... both silk and fresh flowers, indoor and outdoor plants, seeds and containers.
