I traveled to Venice in April 2014 with my fiance and just feel in love with the city. I stayed really close to the Rialto Market - I loved browsing through all the kiosks and trying different fruits and pastries, trying on hats and scarves. I went home with MANY things from the Rialto market including a hat, a new... More

I am 15 years old and recently travelled to Venice with my family (mother, father, 11 year old brother), and I absolutely fell in love with the city. The Rialto Market was one of many experiences in the city that I adored. We're relatively relaxed travellers, so we did a lot of exploring the city and tried to avoid "tourist... More

Very busy market, lots of activity here. Great for taking photos, none of the stallholders seemed to mind, probably so used to it. We never purchased anything but a great selection of fresh produce to be had.

Becoming a little too touristy, but come and see where Venetians buy their fruit & veg / fresh fish from - it's very close to Rialto Bridge...

This was a highlight of our trip to Venice. Fresh food, amazing dried fruit and just a cool place to walk around.

Its a bustling market in Venice. If around Rialto bridge should visit. Got some scrumptious cherries to enjoy later.

Rialto market is a lovely open air fresh vegetable and fish market with lots of selection, but it's not much different from any other well stocked farmer's market (ie. Santa Monica farmer's market in LA, St. Lawrence market in Toronto) so I'm not sure what the big deal is. Everything looked and smelled great, and maybe if we'd been staying... More

Beautiful produce, flowers, herbs, and tons of fresh fish - some identifiable and some not! It's busy and crowded but super fun to just walk around and look at everything, even if you don't want to buy anything. We were there on a Saturday morning and took dozens of pictures; we have a small farmer's market in our home town... More

Check out the fresh fish and produce for sale. Buy a few items and go sit on the dock and enjoy. The only worthwhile shops around are those selling oils or meat. We bought some great prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella for a snack with some fruit. The colors and smells of the market are unique. Skip the stalls of tourist... More

Great atmosphere here if you want to see the locals in action and want to get amongst it as well. Plenty of fresh produce to purchase as well as local packaged items such as pasta and herbs. Be weary it can get crowded. A lot of tourists in this area.
