This is the second part of the article on the Venetian Fish Market.
I start this with a Jackson Pollock painting, Lavender Mist. For some reason I have associated it with the cuttlefish photo that follows.

 I have never tasted this soft crab, but it looked so delicious that I was ready to buy it, eventhough I had no place to go and cook it. I tried to find it in the restaurants or trattorias without success.

Canestrelli are pilgrim scallops that are delicious! The work literally means “little baskets”.

I cannot resist to publish a photo of pescatrice cheeks that are a real delicacy, even though the photo is not that good.

 I would not like to attempt to trranslate “moscardino” into english, lets just say it is a small octopus like polipus.

The buyers in Venice know their stuff and they cannot be fooled. This in my view is one of the basic reasons that the quality of the products on offer is so high.

The building that houses the market has beautiful arches that are fully “clothed” and create a more fresh atmosphere inside.
