Having just dropped our bags at the hotel, our room was not quite ready so we hit the streets and we were not disappointed. This was the Sicily we came to see: Tables of gorgeous, impossibly tiny wild strawberries, peaches the size of softballs, whole swordfishes being carved up, baskets of tiny fish waiting to be taken home and fried up.
We happened upon a stall selling stunningly simple sandwiches of fried-on-the-spot chick pea fritters (I think it is called pannelle). The vendor asked if we wanted eggplant, too. We did. And we happily strolled the market, eating our 1 euro sandwiches, juices dripping down our chins.
We were able to follow this with a paper cone full of fresh seafood salad and a few pieces of fresh fruit -- all while taking in the sights of whole sheeps' heads, cheese mongers and fish mongers.
Well worth a visit.
