I don't really care about markets that's why I guess it was overated for me would not say defo go because you would not miss out on anything special however, you can discover how locals live, shop and eat at a day to day basis.

Take time to visit the market, some great sights and items to be purchased. The fish market is worth a visit even if you don't intend to buy just for the sights, if can get a bit smelly though but defiantly worth a visit.

If I lived in venice, I might stop eating all red meat and eat only fish for protein. The market was more perfect than what I could imagine. The smell of fresh catch and the beauty of gorgeous blooms and plump fruit just put me...More

My husband and I have always been in the food business and the first place we visit is the local market. I though La Bocceria in Barcelona was the best ever but Mercati di Rialto was pretty close. Exquisitely fresh fish abounded. Fruits and vegetables...More

I loved seeing all the different types of seafood from this side of the world. Spider crabs, cuttlefish, squid and more. They had spices and pasta and rices as well as produce. Oh and horse meat. I had no idea they eat horse meat.

Amazing amounts of very fresh produce, bright colors and local flavors. A perfect place at which to assemble a picnic lunch. Get there early if you can. Well worth the visit!

It would be wonderful if this existed in the uk. An amazing selection of fresh fish shellfish etc. Everything is here inexpensive and plentiful.

Every fruit, vegetable, and type of seafood under the sun. Or should I say under the tents 😁. The smells alone will put you over the edge. Strawberries as big as your hand! Go, buy, eat, enjoy!

Small, pleasant local market. Not too big so you don't feel overwhelmed. It has everything you expect to see. The vendors were helpful and not at all pushy. Some were open to bargaining, and prices were very reasonable.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

There are plenty of flowers, both fresh and dried, at the market. I saw many shops nearby and others in town that had flowers. It is always best to go early in the day for the largest selection of both food and flowers! Good... More
