Sunday morning in Bergamo. Neither clouds, nor rain, or a good chance of a thunderstorm was going to keep us at home, and for being rather close to where we live, it was about time we checked out the Mercatanti in Fiera. Counting its 11th edition, the fair brings together a multitude of flavors and cultures from all over Europe, turning 3 days in October into one fun and food-filled weekend.
While Italy was well-represented among the food stands and product booths, this is not the typical sagra or festa that we usually gravitate toward. Still, we had a great time eating our way from Belgium to Spain and beyond. More images in a set on Flickr. A real pity that the weather wasn’t the best because we would’ve brought the dogs along as well. From what I saw, canine friends are just as welcome to mingle with the crowds.
