Locals takes food seriously, smells, pinches and discuss quality.The range is local and you will not find much imported.Perhaps it can not compete with the best food market, but it should be borne in mind that Cagliari is not a large city.Missing, however, what one finds in Spain, France ... small eateries where you can be served a little goodies...

A very large market, two stories with seafood at the lower floor. Was not easy to find and asked a lot of local people who did not even know. Later a man knew and responded that it was the best in Italy. Very crowded and lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, poultry and different varieties of seafood. Lots to see and... More

Having lived in France for 20 years I have visited many markets. This one beats them all hands down for meat, fish and fruit / veg. What it lacks is the atmosphere of cafes, and locals meeting for a catch up. Go if you want a truly fantastic shopping experience, give it a miss if you are hoping to get... More

During our stay in Muravera we visited the capital Cagliari. Perfect working attraction is Mercato San Benedetto. Many shops with meat, cheese, wine and sweets on the top floor and a typical fish market on the ground floor. We tasted as fresh oysters with lemon - a delicacy! Salespersons are smiled, sing, shout, they offer goods with a smile. Be... More

You definitely need a gps to find the building. It was a very interesting market. The fish floor was a but dirty with water on the floor and random fish thrown in boxes against the wall. The people were very friendly. The best part was actually across the street. There's a little bakery that sells home made pasta and baked... More

I went to this market just to see it as I don't eat sea food at all, but when you're there and all the fishermen are calling you out and offering you their food I wanted to try everything! I was there with the camera and the people working there started to film me back and they were posing like... More

If you have a chance to prepare yourself a fish, then explore one of the largest fish markets that I've seen in my life and buy some rarities, which you don't see on other fish markets. Friendly sellers, lots of diverse offer, also near the closing time. Other parts of the market are also worth to check for meat and... More
