When in Venice... Of course you have to spend just twenty minutes walking through the market, buy some fruit or a sandwhich and then sit by the canal and enjoy your purchase to the sounds of venice!

Food lovers should head here for a look. Great fish market with adjoining fruit & veg market. Also great butcher shops, including one exclusively with horse meat! Some nice cafés, restaurants and bars in this area.

I live "between" Rome and Venice. When I spend the week end in Venice, I absolutely go to this market. It's a fantastic place! You can find any kind of fresh vegetables, usually coming from local agricolture. There's some turistic stand, usually operated by stranger (Indians, Bangladesh ...) but you can simply avoid them. If you chose the correct stand... More

A very charming little market, to be sure - it was a couple of blocks long, and had lots of fresh seafood and produce. My wife had amused herself with the idea of getting a picture of "The Merchant of Venice", so I figured what better place to get a picture of such a character than the market? (I've included... More

Lovely small fruit and vegetable market. Lots of dried herbs to choose from. If you ever watch the film The Tourist you might remember the scene that Johnny Depp jumps from the balcony nearby into the market. There is also a gondola stop next to the market if you want to cross the canal to the other side with a... More

Having a husband with food allergy issues made having access to a market with fresh fruit and vegetables (as well as a wonderful selection of dried fruit) very important. We LOVED the selection of fruit and vegetables, and I only wish that I had access to a kitchen so I could have cooked with some of it - the baby... More

The market is not that big and less what we expected, but overall is worth to visit. Bought some fresh fruits with reasonable price, pasta and some ingredients.

I have to admit I was a little disappointed in the size of the fresh open market in the Rialto Mercado in Venice Italy. My friends and I were staying in an apartment we had rented just steps from the market and the Rialto Bridge, and we had decided to eat just a couple meals in restaurants because we wanted... More

To be honest, I used this bridge more as a bridge than a shopping area. It's neat. It's interesting. Everyone should go spend a couple hours looking around and taking the obligatory holiday photos. Yes, it's touristy and crowded in the day. Yes, there are much more interesting places to explore in Venice. But. This is a Venitian institution and... More
