What's At the Rialto Market These Days

The above image--not "styled" for the camera, but taken just as I found it in our kitchen one evening--shows the array of things to be found in the Rialto market as the holidays approach: persimmons, pomegranates, lemons, tangerines, apples, vine-ripened tomatoes, onions, garlic, fresh ginger... With these possibilities at hand I never found myself missing, or even thinking about the American Thanksgiving, as in themselves they were worthy of their own lower-case thanksgiving. I'm dismayed at the thought that some people might visit Venice and buy their fruits and vegetables from one of the city's chain supermarkets. Don't do it! (picture taken: 5 December 2020)
