This fellow you see sets up his products in Piazza delle Erbe. Somedays he is there, somedays he is not. However, when he is there you can depend on him to have many kinds of nuts. He even has nuts from Oregon...go figure!
If you are familiar with the American product called Corn Nuts, he has this--regular and hot.
I bug him about having pecans, but they are difficult to find in Italy.
He is a good one to practice your Italian with, as he is patient....and has the time to help you a little.

What to buy: Chestnuts, and pistaccios.

What to pay: Same prices or lower than stores
