Ortigia food market

So it probably won't come as a massive surprise that NM and I love food. NM is more of a foodie than me and seems to know so much...but he has been teaching me. Anyway the choice of a Sicily as a honeymoon destination was totally influenced by our love of Italian cuisine, and as predicted it was amazing. We ate a lot of really lovely food. One of my favourite food experiences of the holiday was discovering an amazing food market just around the corner from our hotel. We were in heaven – people offering us samples left, right and center – tables and tables full of the freshest ingredients – mountains of fruit – giant fish. Here are a few of the photos that I snapped on my phone.

This last one, was a lovely little shop in the market where they put together an incredible tasting platter for us full of different meats and cheeses from the deli with a delicious glass of wine. It was possible one of my favourite lunches of all time...and we ended up buying lots of yummy treats from that shop! Nothing like good customer service eh!

It did really make me appreciate what it a different it makes to have fresh incredients that are amazing quality. I can only dream of having a market like this to do my weekly shop in! Hope you are not all salivating too much after looking at these pics! Apologies for them not being great quality. I took them on my phone and then edited them with VSCO CAM.
