This market was a lot of fun, though less boisterous than the market at Palermo. On the other hand, fewer motorbikes and NO cars or trucks passed through this market, which I appreciated. I was especially pleased that the market is part of an area pedonale (pedestrian only zone), something that Palermo lacks completely, so far as we could tell.
When you go to the market, if you plan on buying anything, make sure to walk through the WHOLE market first and check the prices. Not that the prices are high. We bought five bunches of spinach for one euro, then found a vendor at the other end of the market selling spinach at 10 bunches for a euro.
Of course, I also enjoyed the market because it was another great opportunity to record. I collect these soundscapes and then put them up at my website. If you want to hear some of them, go to www.martianwalrus.com and have a listen. It's the next best thing to being there.
