TURIN MARKETJuly 04, 2015
Local produce markets reveal so much about a country - which is exactly why I love exploring them. You can get a real insight into what a country produces and what the locals buy and you just never know what weird and wonderful things that you are going to find. When we came across a local produce market in Turin (a city in the Northern region of the country) we couldn't forgo the temptation to peruse the market's vibrant array of all things Italian.
Local produce markets tend to be comparatively cheaper than the shops, which is a great for both consumers and the local producers as it keeps trade busy. We purchased some punnets of fresh fruit for just a couple of Euros which is much cheaper than what you would ever expect to pay at home, not to mention much fresher. You can spend hours at a market exploring, photographing and nibbling and with all of the locally grown produce you can get a real taste of the local area.
