open early till late (we went after 8pm and there still a few stands with great fruits and vegetables), the rialto market is a nice inexpensive escape from the otherwise expensive meals in restaurants. we stayed in venice a few days and made 2 trips here, both were well worth the time as we walked out with the freshest, best smelling strawberries, apples and tomatoes i've had in years!
there are a few nice shops within 2 blocks of the market, one in particular that i liked was called Il Gufo Artigiano located at Ruga degli Spezieri, San Polo 299. the store sells handmade leather goods - purses, photo albums, key chains, face masks, and address books. fairly reasonable prices (i paid 135 euros for a messenger bag that will be one-of-a-kind in all of new york city).
