Food Markets
Immerse yourself in the local culture visiting the food markets and selecting the freshest veggies, fruits, seafood, herbs and spices organically produced and self-caught by locals in Ischia and Naples alike. The island produces the most amazing aubergine (eggplants), tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, lemons, berries etc. Another specialty on the island to which you might take a liking is rabbit. Mamma Tina cooks up a fine rabbit, done in herbs, garlic, tomatoes and olive oil. A favourite is to serve the sauce topped over a plate of buccatini pasta, followed by the meat as seconds. Something you can't leave Ischia without trying at LaCasereccia. The market in Forio is daily, 7am - 1pm. (near the post office)
