    Pescheria Detail

    fish detail

    OK I'll spare you gory close up of live smelly wriggling fish - instead I was quite taken with the fish detail on the columns supporting the arches of the fish hall. Its worth a look when the market is closed for the day

    fish market hall

    Just adjacent to the fruit and veg market on the grand canal is the fish market. Glad I saw it when it was over - phew, the smell of fish and seeing wriggling eels is not for me - but i did enjoy lookin at the neo-gothic fish market hall (built 1907). Really handy location for the seagulls to mop up the bits!

    Rialto Market

    veg market Rialto

    The daily fruit and veg market of Rialto is a colourful way to see the bustling buyers of daily produce. Carnival time is even more colourful as the stall holders dress up in costumes - that must be a great sight!
    Go in the last hour of trading and you can get half price bargains too.

    A great fruit and vegetable market on one side, and a very smelly fishmarket just next to it: Don't miss this very lively 'act' close to the Rialto bridge. Every morning until noon, marchands sell their stuff to the locals and tourists.

    Fruitstalls on Rialto market

    Rialto Market has been the centre of trade for centuries, from 1097 onwards to be exact.
    Every morning the merchants come with their fresh fruits and vegetables. The shopowners display their goods on the bridge and there's a really southern market feeling.

    Vist the mercati di Rialto (...

    Vist the mercati di Rialto ( All'Erberia). Rich offerings of local produce, among others radicchio from Treviso, aparagus and artichokes from the Sant Erasmo island.
    Next to it the fishmarket, which we missed, because closed on sundays and mondays, with a huge choice of fish and seafood.
    Come early when everything is fresh and abundant.

    'Markets'

    The fresh produce on sale in Venice is wonderful. The best place to go is the market alongside the Grand Canal near Rialto. Here there is a fruit and vegetable market in traditional stalls; a fish market in the usual covered fish market type of building, with the fish displayed on ice and the expected 'stench' in the air; and finally a meat market, in permanent stands more like shops, facing out onto the market area.

    Many items to view. From wild mushrooms to uncooked shrimp.

    Walk around and find something that interest you.

    There are lots of little outdoor markets in Venice where you can buy wonderful bread ( the kind with olives in it) and fresh fruit!! It always seemed to taste so much better there!

    I love visiting outdoor markets and the fish and fruit/vegetable markets in Venice are some of my favorites. The vendors are friendly and the produce spectacular.

    Touristy Tat

    The Rialto Market can be dated back by records to 1097. It is bustling and busy, selling all kinds of fresh produce and touristy trinkets from 7.30am - 1pm Mon-Sat.

    steppind down to the arcades

    From the steps leading down from Rialto Bridge - towards the Rialto markets -you enter the shopping arcades of the goldsmiths, silversmiths and silktraders. They first began trading here in 1300's.

    One of many

    If you walk through the Fish Market you come to the edge near where the tragetto stop is you will find this, one of Venice's many lovely lamps, on the wall.

    Visit the Fish Market

    by ChrsStrl Updated Jun 3, 2003
    The Market in the morning

    Right near the Rialto is the lively fish market. Go early for the views of the fish stall or later if you just want to admire the architecture!
