Nice market

Just two minutes over the Rialto Bridge (from the square), you can get fresh fish and fruits sold by local vendors.

Hear in the Heart of Venice, you will find a part of real life. The Rialto Market, both fish and fruit is a a real treat, if you are looking for heart and soul of the people of Venice. Not just a tourist destination.

We enjoyed walking through this market. The kids (9&14) likes looking at the different kinds of fish they had. Locals are working getting fish cleaned and organized to sell.

Typical and local market with lots of fruits, vegetables and fish. Local people come early in the morning to make sure they have the best products. Even if you don't want to buy anything, just walking around is nice thing to do in Venice

If you don't want to miss fish market you have to go early in the morning. Vegetables and fruits were nice, but fish department was amazing.

It's okay nothing special and over priced goods as it's Venice so they think they can get away with it...slightly insulting.

Fabulous produce and very reasonable prices. Amazing fresh fish - kinds we'd never seen. This place makes cooking in Venice more fun than eating out. Would highly recommend it.

Sometimes it's nice to step outside the typical tourist box and see life how the locals live. Markets are a great way to start this adventure. Nothing better than people watching venders and selling a haggling over produce. Great vibe to this market and some beautiful smells

The market is very much for the locals and its a great way to see something other than the tourists sights. The fish market is the best part and fabulous to see the huge range of wonderful fresh seafood we don't see much in London. Surrounded by some interesting little streets, shops and eateries, well worth a visit.
