The fresh, mouth-watering foods on display at the Modena market are incredible. Try the pesto alla genovese on warm bread.

Walking down a 2,000-year-old Roman road into the city of Modena, you’ll see ruts carved into the stones of the road. These ruts are probably from carts brimming with local produce. To me, this suggests that the fresh market in this region of Italy has been an attraction for a very long time.
Modena lies at the heart of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. It is a rich agricultural land that produces a bounty of culinary delights like Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, balsamic vinegar, and bubbly red Lambrusco wine.
And the Modena fresh market features them all.
Tricia and I had an incredible set of experiences in and around this prized Italian city. The edible art at the Modena fresh market was one of our favorites.
