If you want to score a good deal (and take home larger quantities of fruit and vegetables) then head to the mercato all’ingrosso where it is not unrealistic to find oranges for €0.50 per kilo (~$0.50 a pound). Not bad, eh?
There’s no doubt, one of my Fall favorite is definitely chestnuts, which find the perfect climate in Italy where they grow naturally. Documented since the Roman times, for centuries they have been a dominant portion of the peasants’ standard diet. Did you know that they come in two versions? The smaller one is called castagne, while the bigger one is called marroni.
