Now THIS is a market

Yesterday, I wandered through the Rialto Market in Venice. It is right near the famous bridge... where it has been found for centuries.Parts of it are sheltered under a wide portico, that was built in 1907.
The market is divided between the Pescheria (the fish market) and the Erberia (the fruit and vegetable market). The sights and the smells are impossible to describe. This gives a new meaning to 'fresh'.
Jan and I found the Botarga we needed for our recipe~ I didn't know either, but it is the roe from a mullet fish. Jan did a great job with her Italian! This little shop carried all kinds of gourmet items.
All they need is a little WhistleStop.
Ciao y'all~
