There are lots of fish and other delicacies. Too bad that as tourists we cannot buy and cook the fish. But, this will end up as an entree in a restaurant. This is right on the canal and not far from San Marcos. Interesting to...More

The Rialto Market seems to have been catered for tourists, but it's still absolutely amazing. The narrow paths between booths were packed with locals and tourists alike - eyeing food and other goods. If you visit Venice, you must go to the Rialto Market.

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

to ad to my earlier reply - the market is not open Sunday - the fish market is not open Sunday or Monday.
What time is the Rialto Market open on Sundays in October? How active is the market on Sunday mornings?
