Excellent market showcasing sardinian food. That weird stuff made out of dried fish eggs, that manky dessert wine, flags with 4 coloured gentlemen wearing blindfolds, bread in wacky shapes, all sorts.

Excellent experience, we have a great time every time we go. Don't be afraid to ask anything, people will help you as much as they can and will make you feel like home. Best prices and everything is very fresh. Definetely a must, both if you stay in Cagliari for a long or a short period.

So we drove to Cagliari today to go buy our fish for the grill and all the seafood we may want for the next days. it was AMAZING! The fish was soooo super fresh. There was parking right in front. The prices... More

After wandering around looking at the plethora of mouth delights I stopped at place in the corner with fresh fish to go. I had a huge cone of all variety of fish and shellfish. Likely a kilo, all...

An enclosed market on two levels. Downstairs fish, upstairs meat and veg. Certainly a lot of fresh produce although most stalls seem to sell the same things over and over. Didnt find a huge variety or difference in product which I think was what we were really looking for. The sellers were all very friendly even when confronted with our... More

For a city of 120,000, this market has more variety of meat, fish, bakery, vegetables, cheese and fruit then I have ever seen. There are larger markets like in Toranto but no where have I seen fresher fish. If you want to cook for yourself in a rented apartment this is a must stop which you can get to from... More

If you like seafood and fish this market is the best place to go. Meat, hams, prosciutto, all kind of bread, pecorino cheese, fruit, veg... I discovered the... More
