Rialto is the heart of Venice. Every morning except on Sundays there's a colorful open air food market, with scenic views on the Grand Canal. The fish market opens five morning a week, Tuesdays through Saturdays. Don't forget to bring your camera! Hidden in the side alleyways there are some excellent wine and tapas bars and some delicious trattorias.
Lovely food on sale, but way too much touristy stuff. Dont go there during Venice's busy months.
The Rialto Fish Market and the fruit and vegetable market are open from 7.30am-1.00pm every day except Sunday. The fish market is not open on Monday. This amazing market has been operating every day for almost a thousand years and is the place to get the freshest of produce.
very picturesque market, meeting point for all locals buying groceries and fresh seafood
It's best to arrive early if you want to see the Erberia (vegetable market) and Pescheria (fish market) in full swing. The barges start arriving at dawn, and the vendors are bargaining with customers by 08:00. The wholesalers and most of the retailers close up shop by midday, so stock up on fruit and photo opportunities before lunch!
Fantastic outdoor market in Venice. I mean really, you've probably never seen a fish market as fabulous as the fish market in Venice.
