In 2014 about 40 people from Middletown, CT went to Sicily to visit the town in which many had roots. This was Melilli high above the sea and a short drive to Siracusa. One day many of us went to the market in Siracusa and that became one of the gastronomical highlights of the trip. We all made purchases and picknicked in the park. Yesterday Angela and I went back and recreated some of the highlights of that day. Today The NY Times had an article on Eataly in NYC and how great it was for food and produce. It can not compare to the real thing.
Amazing fresh fruits that have been grown close to us, not thousands of miles away. The peaches were delicious.
Enough about food for now, Later in our trip we will be attempting to visit all the markets in Roma.
