The Mercato Centrale is such a cool, local place to pop in and visit and it is also a place to pick up some gifts (chocolates, cheese, truffles, etc...) for those back home. The endless fresh fruits, fruit juices, vegetables, meats and cheeses are worth a stroll. While there was always a long line for the popular tripe sandwich, towards the back of the market, where the seafood is located, treat yourself to the fun experience of ordering fresh-from-the-ocean the made-to-order fried calamari, fish or shrimp baskets! Whatever they sell, they fry - just ask. The music is blasting, the gregarious cook uses some entertaining moves to flour the seafood before tossing it into the fryer, the other owner takes care of the people purchasing to go, while at the same time, offering all those who wait for their delicious fried seafood baskets a generous plastic cup of white wine! You can even ask for seconds!
