"Sant'Erasmo Island (Northern Lagoon of Venice, between Murano, Burano and Torcello) has always been considered the vegetable garden of Venice. It is famous for the tastiness of its produce thanks to the particularities of the soil which is in part sand and clay and the vegetables are always present at Rialto market in Venice. Sant’Erasmo is famous for its artichoke, its beets and its asparagus".
I can say that Sant'Erasmo tomatoes and cucumber are painfully delicious, believe me. Tomatoes are so warm they taste like blood and sun melted together. Great greek salads in the next few days!!!
