A rather large market serving primarily locals is always a fun place to visit. Same applies to Capo market. Plenty of stalls offering fruits and vegetables, fish and meat, spices and herbs and more. A celebration of colors, smells and sounds.

We experienced true Palermo life while visitng the Capo Market. Everything you can imagine..and more...is sold there. Fish, spices, vegetables, clothing, etc. we loved the excitement and the rush as we were bombarded with smells, colours and loud voices. Excellent experience.

Everyone knows that Palermo is studded with street markets, but Ballaro` and Vucciria seem to get the most attention. We've been to these and Ballaro` has life in it, whereas Vucciria is more legend than market. Capo on the other hand is the real thing, compact, teeming, colourful and short on tourists. The produce was so nice and fresh and... More

This is the best of the street markets. It made me homesick, especially the long section of the market which is lined with shops run by Bangladeshis.

Seafood stand was really really good. People are screaming, food is everywhere, it was super fun. There's also great stands with olive oil, dried tomatoes, chocolate.

Soooo much local flavor here. Wander the side streets and find local pubs with wine in silver vats and drink with the wonderful friendly locals. The market is filled with fish, meat, fruits and veggies.

Perhaps not as impressed as could have been as we went on Sunday morning when it was all a little quieter. However , in saying that came across a real set to in the market, lots and lots of screaming and shouting and big sticks, with heavies arriving on motor bikes! All very interesting, no threat to the passers by.... More
