Vegetables on the water, S Barnaba

In Venice all happens on boats on the canals, like the transportation and selling of goods. So we saw at the Campo S Barnaba this local vegetable market at the boats at the Rio de S Barnaba.

What to buy The local people bought here their vegetables like cauliflower and carrots.

Seafood Markets: Feeling Fishy!?

Venice is the place to go to eat sea food - it is all so fabulous and fresh!

Whilst you are roaming around in Venice you will no doubt stumble across one of the fish markets dotted around the city. There is a large one early in the day in the Dorsoduro, and a few stalls can also be found in Campo Santa Margherita (where this picture was taken).

The main fish market or pescaria is located just near the Rialto bridge in San Polo. It has been in operation for 700 years!

Fresh fruit market: Very taste and not expensive

In case you have bunch of children or you're just a fruit lover, buy fruits in Mestre or any other place in the surroundings of Venice. The prices you can find here are twice cheaper then in Venice, and the fruits are definetely fresher.

What to buy This is (see the picture) Easter offer, buy strawberry of course.

What to pay One single-box cost you 1 euro, two boxes one euro a piece, in case you buy three or more boxes, burgain the price.

Su_Ve: Food Store

This place is like an oasis in desert. Venice is expensive and existence of such a food store is very pleasant. You can do all of your food shopping from here at reasonable price. I remember the bottle of 500 ml coke was around Euro 0.57.

Boat Sale: Boat Sale

Guess this is a new slant on a car boot sale - on a boat instead! The Dorsoduro area of Venice has several boat shops like this - near the big Frai church I think it was.

What to buy Bric-a-brac and antiques
