A visit to Venice

When Rebecca Woollard went to Venice, in 2016, it was her first time visiting. She fell in love with not only the beauty of the city, but also the magic that is the Rialto Market.

Photographer Gareth Morgans captured the vibrance and character of this busy Italian market – take a long look at the produce that steals the hearts of tourists and locals alike.

Globe artichokes show off their royal purple and grass-green layers, catching the eyes of hungry market-goers.

Stalls heave with an abundance of fresh produce. Glossy aubergines, fragrant tomatoes, firm green asparagus spears and baby courgettes, sporting delicate yellow-green flowers, are the makings of a fresh and flavoursome feast.

A gondolier is caught deep in thought. Perhaps he too is thinking about what to have for lunch.

Dried chillies are tied into fiery bouquets, daring you to sprinkle a little too much into this evening’s meal.

A florist hurries inside with a wicker basket of scarlet-red, hot-pink and white flowers. As the hottest part of the day looms, he must ensure his prized plants are tended to.
