The main reason to go to this market is that it is that the Saturday market is the largest in Venice. It was interesting to see the different types of seafood, but if you aren't actually there to buy, the rest of the market isn't...More

Go there to enjoy the market wonders, especially the fish market stands. You'll see tourits, of course, just like me ... but you also people from Venice who go there for their shopping, talking with the market vendors.

We were in Venice in 2007 and never went across the Rialto Bridge. What a mistake that was. We went back in 2013 and stayed on the Market side of the bridge. What a surprise on Saturday morning when we walked out or hotel door...More

The two main Piasso's in Venice are St. Mark's and Rialto's. Rialto's has everything and more variety than St. Mark's. You should see St. Marks' for the Basilica and for Doge's Palace but do your shopping at Rialto. You can get very reasonably priced food...More

Fishes are so fresh and price is quite reasonable. We have been to there twice and bought quite a lot of fishes, prawns and so on. However, be careful of selecting veg. Shouldn't touch, and the owners might stop you by shouting at you....

This was a cute market to stop by on our trip. You can buy all kinds of produce and sauce seasonings. Worth stopping by while we were near Ponte di Rialto. Only open in the morning so be sure to time it right.

You will recognize this market if you had watched the movie "The Tourist" starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, as this is where the chase scene was filmed. We visited just after lunch time and unfortunately for us, most of the market stalls were already...More

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

Can't improve on the other answer. Most continental food markets tend to be morning only. If you like markets this one's worth a visit. Although I wonder if its days are numbered , lots of protesting about losing it.
What time is the Rialto Market open on Sundays in October? How active is the market on Sunday mornings?
