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




Flowers





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




Don't you just adore food markets :-) which one have you visited lately

  1. I see I've missed a few posts on my little blogging break :) Your zucchini blossoms, roasted fish and drive through the Dolomites all look wonderful and beautiful.

    Food and farmers' markets are the best!

  5. I could spend all day in European markets. So much to see. Thanks for taking us along. I can't imagine trying on shoes and holding a baby at the same time. Wow. That would take more coordination than I have (smile).

  13. You made me feel so nostalgic. The last food market I visited was in Modena but wish I had gone here too. Looks like an amazing place. One of things that has always appealed to me about the north of Italy was the mixture of Austrian/Italian cultures with a German influence.
    You do look so happy in all the pics. So glad you had such an amazing experience and thank you for letting us experience it too through your posts. Brought a huge smile to my face xx
