This Little Piggy Went to Market

We went to the open market at Campo de'Fiori today. I was surprised at the variety of things for sale. They had rows and rows of beautifully colorful fresh fruit and vegetables, different pasta noodles, dried fruit, nuts, kitchen gadgets, all different kinds of flowers, some clothes, scarves, ad jewelry. All of the vendors were more than happy to help you shop at their stands, and only some bordered on being pushy. The fresh fruit and vegetables were sold at a much better price than at the grocery stores and the selection was incredibly better. The atmosphere was far more relaxing than the stressful super markets where no one wants to help you, you feel rushed to bag your own groceries, and you get dirty looks if you don't have exact change.
