SEA URCHINS, BOTTARGA, MUSSELS...
One seller had me sample sea-urchin flesh: few times in my life have I tasted anything so delicious.
I also bought some bottarga (dried mullet roe to grate on pasta or eat sliced) and squid. Then I found some wonderful mussels at the "Cozzaro Nero" stall.
Meanwhile, two housewives were almost coming to blows: whose turn was it to be served?
