10th February: Piazza delle Erbe in Carrara

One of the first things people think of when they think of Italy is food. And rightly so, especially around here; olive groves, vineyards, tomatoes, cheese, pesto. Tuscany is the place. The moment where I really come to realise this is at the Herb Market in Carrara. On the first Saturday of the month producers from the local area sell their wares. And because it is direct from the producer they are able to answer any questions you might have about the products. I went on the 1st and an still living off the delicious salami I bought there!
