"Great Italian vegetable market!"
At the corner of Fresh Pond road and Madison street is Valentino’s, the best Italian vegetable market around. The fruits and veggies are cheap and fresh. The main problem with the place is that it’s small and popular, so you can’t stop moving while you’re shopping. They also have a fantastic olive bar. I know a lot of places with olives, but this one is above the rest as far as flavor, and it is only 4 bucks a pound. Across Fresh Pond road is a Dunkin Donuts if you want your carbs and coffee. Across Madison is a small park, and you never see any homeless.
