  • Very interesting market.. Fresh food and fish Fun watching the locals. The fish and fruits and veggies were fresh and awesome to see  more »
  • Market located shortly after crossing the Rialto Bridge. It tells a little of the customs and gastronomy of Venice. It is divided into two areas: fish market and fruit and vegetable market.

  • Worthwhile but more of a tourist market than a locals market from my observation.
  • Interesting farmers market scene - reminds me of ferry building market or the one in Seattle. Fresh fish - closes on mondays . The dried fruits cannot compare to California. The figs too sweet. I recommend it as a stop but not for serious shopping. COOP supermarket is better :)
