  spices, rice, name it

This booth in the daily Padova market is typical of a few others found among the numerous stalls selling their wares. It specializes in spices of all types, and rice with appropriate spices added. They are great for making Risotto.

What to buy: Also found in these stalls are various types of dried beans, and even dehydrated potato flakes sold in bulk (big thing in Italy). I noticed honey, jams, and numerous bottled peppers or figs.

Theme: Food and Drink
