I decided to head down to the Monza Saturday market this morning. Katrina found a vendor that sells really tasty and fresh parmigiana, so we try to buy from them each time we run out.
The Monza market is a large version of the markets that setup each weekday in many of the local towns. Vedano also has a Saturday market, although much smaller than the one in Monza.
Belts, bags and leather goods
Roasted chicken, beef, goat, rabbit and pork
Pasta, beans, grains
Cheeses and meats
Fresh fish. They can cut a fresh fillet of swordfish right on the spot
More cheeses to choose from than you can count
And the ever present fake designer bags. These guys hang out along the perimeter of the market.
Scarpe - shoes, shoes and more shoes
And of course, fruit and veggies from all over Italy.
I came home with two types of cheese, a roasted chicken, salame and a bag of candies.
