I love shopping at the Italian Market here in Edmonton. Once inside the door you are transported to another world... the old world, with some hints of North America scattered throughout the store. From endless choices of olive oil, vinegar, and tomato sauce, to interesting fruits and veggies... this store offers you a taste of Italy at reasonable prices. My produce paintings are often inspired by a shopping trip to this quaint store... a colorful hot spot filled with cooking staples, spices and of course, sweet treats.
