Mercati di Rialto reviews
This is near the famous Rialto bridge, and is where Italians do some of their daily shopping. The fruits are fresh, sweet and flavorful beyond comparison. The vegetables look very fresh also... more »
This is the food market of Venice. It shows, that Venice is still a living city and not a museum. You get there fish, fruits, vegetables and spices. Everything is fresh there. It is still a pure food.... more »
Apparently, the market is nowhere near as bustling as it used to be, but that makes it kind of nice. EVERYTHING IS SUPER FRESH! My only wish was a kitchen to cook in, but I was on vacation. Lots of interesting sights and sounds. Beware of the seagulls. They're strong and always hungry!
We had a lot of fun walking around the market. We ended up buying some sun-dried tomatoes and some Pancetta to take home. If you like markets - this is definitely recommended!
