Much to see in the Ballaro market. Typical large seaside market with lots of seasonal veg, fruit, fish, meat. Crowded & busy! The octopus fast food stand was great! Visit!

We loved our visits to this lively market. We stayed in an apartment in Palermo and bought lunch there. Motzarella, tomatoes, olives, basil, bread and wine. The merchants are super friendly. The fish displays are incredible and the sausages, salamis mouth-watering. A great, authentic experience.
Big city market, very busy. I was surprised that I could not find the fruit that I wanted there. Not especially interesting, but worth a short stroll. Go to the monuments and museums instead.
It was just ok, underwhelmed and not well organized. It was supposed to be one of the better ones in Palmero. The smaller fish market at Catania was more enjoyable.
