This market is must seen by every people who are visiting Palermo. You cab find anything you need at this market. Tipical narrow streets full with vendors tables. You can find here fresh sea food, vegetables.

We were staying in small self-catering apartment and so were wanting to find fresh produce to cook. This isn't as big as the other two major markets in Palermo but is still worth a visit

The energy of a busy food market feels so local. I bought many things at this market - bread, salami, dried tomatoes (to take home), cooked artichokes, dried herb pasta mix. But I went everyday just to have the best arancina in Palermo. Friggitoria Gastronamia...More

Just north of the opera house is an overgrown farmers market that provides food, fish, sundries, and souvenirs at bargain prices. Beware no easy access to bathrooms. I don't think it would meet cleanliness standards, but I did manage to get some T-Shirts 1 euro...More

This was my first Palermo market experience. It was a lively, colourful market with fish, fruits, vegetables, spices and street food. The street food was delicious and there was a fish stall where we had a mixture of fried fish in batter that went down...More

Wow, this market is a must visit. A cacophony of colour, smell, food and loud bargaining. It is an absolute experience. Wander down the streets and see food which is not in any supermarket, the fruit is huge and delicious. Fresh and exotic fish is...More
