When I visit other places in the World one thing I love to do above all others is to visit a local fresh produce market. There is something about the colour, the smells and the pregnant vibrancy which I find irresistible.
This main produce market in Rome was open all day every day.
The market in the Campo di Fiori was amazing.
So were these home grown pineapples in the market in Ponta Delgada , Azores.
Then there was the market in Funchal, Madeira - one of my favourites.
Or the amazing market halls in Quebec, Canada.
I particularly enjoyed the English market in Cork, Ireland.
So where is Matron off to now? well stand by for my next market report from the Rialto market, Venice, Italy. Off for a few days. Baxoon!
