Carovigno Market Day

One of the most interesting experiences in Italy are the open air travelling markets that pop up on certain days in small towns all across the country. Vendors come from all over the local region, selling a smorgasbord of used and new wares. Everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, new and used clothing, household trinkets, art, tools; indeed nearly everything you could imagine a traveling vendor could possibly bring to market can be found here.

I love the colors in the photo the most. Fresh fruits give off such vibrance, combined with a large palette of bright colors. The people interacting in various ways keep things interesting as well.
