For the commercial vendors the market opens at 4 am - I likely couldn't have made it even if I'd wanted, which of course, I didn't. By 9:00 there was still a good selection of fish, some still trying to escape apparently!
This vendor is quite proud of his scallop display - complete with the pink part of the scallop, not found in Canada.
Then after dinner we had a lesson in coffee - apparently more than 100 different kinds here in Italy. Guiliano and Erika gave a little skit showing the confusion about espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, with or without grappa, with or without milk, hot milk or cold milk and certain types are consumed at different times of the day. To become a barrista takes about 10 years. No wonder we have such trouble getting 'normal coffee'!
Sounds like fun!!
