If you are looking for market on which you can buy most of needed and needless things to live this is the place.
Prices are matter of negotiation so don’t give up if you like something.

Vibrant market with fresh food produce, fashion boothes and a bit of everything else
Nov 2019
1. The main market is open daily. Do get up early because they close round 12:00.
2. Great fresh produce if you are looking to cook or have raw fruits.
3. No one will cheat you or hassle. Relax, be cheerful.
4. Clothing - Second hand or damaged (look carefully) ARE A BARGAIN at 2 to 5 Euros. For new merchandise negotiate reasonably though not rudely.
5. Know what you need or want but do not get greedy since carrying great quantities of goods can be exhausting.

a big market for everything
May 2019
Markets are always good places to get the feel of a place. At the daily market (except Sundays) on the quite large Piazza Carlo Alberto, not far off Via Etnea, can be found anything from food to cheap clothes. It is a lively place, as they usually are, popular also with immigrants. Unless one is looking for something particular, it is not a must see for a visitor to Catania.

By the Piazza Carlo Alberto, referring to the Savoyan King of Sardinia of that name, is the church of the Santuario della Madonna della Chiesa with its typical Sicilian Late Baroque facade, which one will constantly see, when strolling between the market stalls.

Crowded, not very interesting place unless you're into cheap clothes and the usual market stuff. Seen much better.

Down to Earth market
Jan 2019 • Couples
We had not read about this market, but stumbled on it by accident.

It is a true local market, and it made us realise that there is a lot of poverty in Sicily. Having visited Italian markets before, we had never seen second hand clothing for sale.

However the fruit and vegetables were very colourful, and it was an experience walking round.

Not something to be missed, but worth walking round if like us you come across it.

One of those markets -bazaars where you never knew they existed whilest you popped on them when you thought you lost:) Kids found it funny to see all veggies and fishes and meat. Men shouting and advertising their products. The veggie -food part was nice! The clothes - second hand item part was more pushy to buy so we just escaped:) When it was all over the place seems wuite different and nice. With lovely basilica on top.

Wonderful market with some really good stalls amongst hundreds of indifferent ones.

This is a huge daily market, open in the mornings, that spills out of the Piazza Carlo Alberto (which is itself one of the biggest squares in the city) into several of the surrounding streets. To be honest there are a lot of stalls selling basically the same thing, electronics, clothing, knock-off designer items, second-hand dross etc which don’t really do it for me. But to the west side of the square are fruit and vegetable stalls with a wonderful array of fresh produce at great prices and surprisingly - given that the city has an excellent fish market – about a dozen stalls selling fish and other seafood. To the north end of the square are the butchers stalls and there are several others selling cheese, charcuterie etc. These are by far the best part of the market and if you are on a self-catering holiday it is a great way to buy fresh, local provisions at a modest price – if your Italian is up to it. If not, don’t be dissuaded, if you make an effort and do a lot of pointing the stallholders are very patient and generous. There is no sense that they are trying to take advantage of a tourist. Some reviewers have mentioned pick-pockets etc but we found absolutely no reason to feel unsafe. A great market.

Worth it is you haven't seen others

It was a large flea market, but much like others in many other cities I’ve visited. After a while all these type markets look the same. We looked at the stalls while walking from the bus station to the main part of town.
