Cannara is a small friendly village with everything necessary for everyday life within a 5 minute walk.  Services around town include: a supermarket, alimentary store, fruit & vegetable store, butchers, restaurant, post office, dry cleaner, laundromat, banks, as well as many bars (caffés) and churches.
Ada, our local vegetable lady, sells her fresh produce on Wednesdays and Fridays just outside the walls of the town from 8am till noon, and on Friday a vendor stops by in the same place to sell fresh fish from the Adriatic Sea.
