This is a market that sells fruit, vegetable, fish, cheese and charcuterie. It is quite extensive, with shops and benches outside in 3 streets and small squares. In the recent past most venetians were shopping there daily. The fish was local and the vegetables were grown in the islands of the laguna, San Erasmo and the Vignole. The vendors were... More

Nothing spectacular. Some nice vegetable, fruit and fish stands. Fun for taking a few pictures but small area. Most of space taken up by vendor carts selling tacky Venice souvenirs.

Make a point to at least see this and if you are staying in a place that has a kitchen like we were, stock up on fruits, veggies and fish. You can get there easily on the vaporetto. Fun to see the locals and prices are cheap. We bought shrimp, fish and veggies and made an incredible dinner.

After walking through this market, I really regretted not renting an apartment with a full kitchen. I have never seen such beautiful seafood and produce and pastas and cheeses and...definitely going back for a do-over!

Brightred seafood, moving crabs, tiny sardines and fat octopus. Bundles of red firecracker pepper and artichoke bases. Fresh baby greens an chanterelle mushrooms. Horsemeat loin and sausage. Reasonable priced produce that locals and restaurantants shop here. See it and soak in the culinary culture!

Whilst most visitors to Venice will make their way to the Rialto Bridge the majority will never make it to the historical Rialto Market which for over 900 years has been the place where Venetians have bought and sold goods from all over the world. Today’s market dates back to the 16th century when it was rebuilt following a fire.... More

The customers are the people who live in this wonderful city. It operates in the morning, like every mediterranean food market. Fresh produce, life in all its many colours. Don't skip this treasure of the city of treasures.

What a joy to come here and witness the blessed bounty enjoyed by Venetians. Though not very large, (and would take no more than an hour to visit all the outdoor stalls - I'd imagine it busier and fuller in non-summer holiday months) the experience with the Grand Canal in full view is thoroughly wonderful. We got there at around... More

Worth getting up early to see this marketplace come alive if you have a big appetite for groceries! Watch the stevedores unload crates of produce from barges, vendors sell their wares as chefs examine the daily supply of fish, veggies and fruits for their daily menus. The colors and smells are "amazing." The tomatoes are out of this world; we... More

I wish we had a market like this in the states! It's absolutely gorgeous! So much food to choose from! It is worth passing by to appreciate that Italian culture. Stick around when the fish market starts closing down to check out the seagulls cleaning up what's left behind.
