This is a typical market with lots of vendors/stalls selling fruit and vegetables, cheese and nuts, spices, flowers, clothing, home and kitchen accessories, etc. It is located just east of Park Giardino Bellini. Very crowded but enjoyable to walk around.

We saw this market during a weekday and were impressed with the vegetables, fruit and fish. However, this market takes on new dimensions on Saturday! All sorts of things are for sale: socks, shoes, belts, boots, purses, clothing, hardware and small electronics. It is frenetic...More

This market was way more than we expected. Booths filled the square and spilled into all the side streets. Everything from fish and produce to clothes, shoes and purses. We lucked out finding parking nearby - driving in Catania was quite an experience. It seemed...More
