World's Best Food Markets

Andrew Zimmern names his favorite food markets around the world: "Through all of my travels, I've found that there's no better way to feel the pulse of a city or to understand the local culture than to visit a market. I can learn more about a people and their way of life here than I can in the local museum, that's for sure. Locavore bazaars -- where merchant's hawk the region's specialties, artisans sell their wares and residents shop for dinner -- offer the most authentic and honest experience."—Andrew Zimmern
