Market Day in Orvieto

The market comes to Orvieto on Thursday and Saturday mornings.  There’s something for everybody.

Vegetables, fruit, plants, and flowers

Beans, nuts, and grains

Fresh fish, lots of cured meats, and porchetta

(Look closely.  That’s a tail.  It’s the real deal.)


Plenty of answers to that burning question:

“What do people do without a neighborhood Target store?”

Plenty of time for a coffee break, too.  I wouldn’t mind shopping at home if there was a bar like this on my way home.  The nonna at the cash register, the mind-bending variety of types of caffes being served, and the choreography of the people behind the bar topped off a perfect trip to the market.
