The market is a different world at night time, amazing atmosphere, lots of characters, and prices are very good, went one night on our way back from the beach, ended up getting back at eleven still covered in sand🤣

Running the length of Via Sant'Agostino, Capo's street market is a seething mass of colourful activity during the day, with vendors peddling fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese and household goods of every description.

Of the three markets, Ballaro is the biggest, Capo is also significant; Vucciria is almost not worth calling a market. Also, Palermo is a city where there are stalls on almost every street corner, even outside the major markets. Supermarkets have correspondingly small fruit and veg sections.

... albeit a bit disappointing as we expected a much larger fish market... Part of the Vucciria, at least from the entrance at Piazza San Domenico, down to Piazza Caracciolo by Discesa Maccheronai (Macaroni [Downhill] Street), has cheap antiques, some groceries stores (with great veggies, fruit, nuts and herbs) and a few places specialized in "Street Food", more for tourists than true Sicilians. The one "Street Food" seller we found was on Piazza Caracciolo: he was selling Pani Ca Meusa (Spleen sandwiches) and looked as authentic as one could. He told us that most places in the Vucciria have closed down and only a few survive and complained to us that the area gets alive only on weekends when the "movida" seeps in. The whole place spelled decay all over. We had lunch at a local restaurant down Discesa Maccheronai: it was OK, but only a vague memory of true Palermitan Street food.
