Fruttivendolo: the Italian fresh fruit & produce vendor


Italians love LOVE fresh fruit.

And they serve fresh fruit at nearly every meal.

When you visit Italy’s major cities, it seems that nearly every neighborhood has its own fruttivendolo (FROOT-tee-VEHN-doh-loh), a store that sells primarily fruit (as well as produce and other groceries).

Of course, who wouldn’t eat that much fresh fruit if you had the natural abundance of gorgeous, delicious fresh fruit that the Italians do?

When you visit a fruttivendolo, be sure not to touch the merchandise.

Have a look at want you want and then tell the shopkeeper how much you want of each fruit (in weight).

She/he will weigh and bag it for you.
