Last week I've been on a trip to Italy. In spite of pouring rain I went to a local market in Reggio Emilia and this is what I saw:
Baskets and loads of local, antique fruit, pumpkin and kale varieties in an abundance which would have been fit for any Flemish still life painting ( see my previous post).

 Green Cabbage and Black Tuscan Kale

 Black Tuscan Kale

 Pumpkins and squash

 Old pear varieties and quinces

 Local "Campanein" apple variety

 Redder than ruby pomegranates!
