Street markets, farmer's markets, or whatever the local terminology is can be a wonderful place to visit when traveling. It doesn't matter if you're going to Portland or Venice. They all have something unique to offer.
Markets can be colorful, chaotic, intense, or laid back. Take some time to sample and purchase local homegrown foods, artisanal cheeses, local wines, and freshly cured sausage. Maybe you will find some food for a picnic.
Wander through the stalls and talk to the vendors. You just might learn the best place to buy your favorite Pinot or the best Prosciutto di Parma in the region.
If you love taking photographs, what better place than this? Colors and shapes surround you in every direction.
