Food vendors in Napoli

Venue: Napoli city centre

Lens: Sigma 35 mm f/1.4 & Samsung S7 camera

Music: Renato Carosone – Tu vuo fa l’Americano (

So far I haven’t posted many photos with food at markets and restaurants, with the exception of the Greenwich village food tour ( But I do spend a substantial time in thinking, buying, cooking or just enjoying food. I have the confidence of saying I do know good and quality food after living some time in Italy and more generally having tried many cuisines and visited plenty of restaurants around the world. So from now on I’m going to start posting more food-related photos and have a dedicated food category on the blog. And of course what better place to start than Italy, and in particular Napoli. It’s a city where everything happens on the street and this includes the sale of all sorts of fresh quality products. Ordinarily one would expect to see most of the photos below from inside a fancy supermarket, but all the shots were really made randomly as I would walk around the street and pass by some good looking vegetables or meat. So I hope you enjoy my first tries in entering the food-oriented photography, all your feedback is very welcome as always!

I dare you to name all fruits and vegetables on this picture.
Some fresh seafood…
..and some more fresh vegetables and mushrooms.
More fish: salmon, sea bream, swordfish and little octopuses.
Probably a less usual sight, cow stomach and intestines that are also an important local ingredient.
Of course we’re not in Italy without some bread and cheese.
And again a wide variety of small fishes and seafood.
Fresh fruit juice with the typical large lemons from the region.
And of course we have to finish in front of some of the famous Neapolitan sweets, my personal favorite baba and the main local specialty sfogliatelle next to some other mouth-watering desserts.

  1. These are awesome photos. I lived in Italy (1970-1975), Como & Milano, and the street food vendors were everywhere. Incredible country, incredible people, and incredible food! πŸ“šπŸŽΆ Christine

  2. Fantastic photos! You’ve really captured the flavor (pardon the pun) of these beautiful Italian markets. I especially love the shot of the entire storefront because it shows just how varied and bountiful these displays can be. I find them almost overwhelming β€” in a good way, of course. Very excited to see where this new direction in your photography takes you!
