Food market in Bolzano, Italy

On our amazing road drive up through the Dolomites we made a stop at Bolzano in northern Italy. I highly recommend a visit it's a town with rich history and cultural heritage. Up until world war one this part of Italy was Austrian and it really is a city of two cuisines and it's reflected in the market. I was also impressed by the town planning you come of the highway and park in a well signed underground parking garage and have a short walk into the stunning town center.

Beautiful Austrian style architecture and the church with the tiled roof is stunning.

German breads

Seasonal vegetables


Lovely beans

Nice packets of herb mixes these were Italian

Got to love the police cars here

This town is town is not just about food it also has an amazing amount of shops. I remember having Roshan in baby carrier and trying to try on shoes it didn't work well ! The girl in the shop even offered to help me re tie my laces !

Amazing fountain as this area is famous for natural springs folks would fill up their drinking water

Salami and cheeses

Wonderful rhubarb

Dried fruits

Love these flowers
