Praiano - Shopping

Hi

We are renting a villa in Praiano this July! As a keen cook, I was interested to know whether anyone knows good local markets for fresh produce in the Amalfi area?

We just returned from renting a villa in Praiano for 2 weeks. We shopped regularly at Angela's, a small (very small) market on the main road in Praiano. Fresh produce was limited, but further up the hill was the Supermarto Tutto e Tutti which had much more to offer for fresh produce. Amalfi and Positano also had more selections, but not convenient for daily shopping. Praiano also has a small fish store and 2 meat stores. We cooked great meals from simple ingredients as do the Italians. Enjoy as we did!

A honeymoon in Praiano...wonderful.

Ours was a retirement celebration...also wonderful!

Check out the forum response to "4 days in Amalfi." There is a lot of info there that might be of use to you in planning your time.

Our villa rental was in Vettica Maggiore (Praiano). Praiano is unlike Positano or Amalfi in that there is no center off the main road. There isn't much in the town which is what makes it so quiet and therefore special. Yet you can easily reach any of the busier towns for lunches, dinners, sightseeing.

We enjoyed dinners at: Le Brace - fun and entertaining, La Strada, Trattoria S. Gennaro and Il Pino.

Daily cappucinno at Bar Del Sole - a must for feeling a part of the town.

Walks, walks, and more walks - buy the book SORRENTO AND THE AMALFI COAST from sunflowerbooks.com if you're interested in walking the coast. Some of the walks are outstanding!

Buon viaggio.....

JILL
