Wednesday morning. Up early (for us) and off to the market by foot. Crossing the Grand Canal at the Rialto Bridge (left), we head for the produce market where everything arrives by boat (right). Stall after stall displays wonderful, colorful fresh fruit, veggies, and other edibles like the squash flowers (below, right).
In addition to the produce stalls, there are fish and meat purveyors. Some selling hard to identify creepy-crawlers and others peddling ordinary stuff like octopus. We found a ledge to perch on to enjoy some fruit and then headed off for more exploration…like finding a place for lunch!
