This little piggy...


...went to market. Well actually he went to the foire in Monaco. Every October there's a big Fair in the circus tent in Fontvieille. You can buy anything from a new kitchen, to designer office chairs from Italy costing 1500 euros, to wines, to cheeses, to meats. There are stands from Morocco, India, Russia - many countries are represented - selling local artisan-made products. My favourite is always the Moroccan stand with its wonderful lamps, mirrors and pots.

This stand is called Divin Porcello and comes from Budrio in the province of Bologna in Italy.

Wow! That is a lot of pork! Seems like a wonderful market area if there are wares such as those in just one shop! Great photo!

Makes me want to practice though!

That is a HUGE piggie.

And look at the size of the salami/sausage on the right.
