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.
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!
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.
"Lunghezze minime permesse per la vendita
del pesce delle seguenti qualita"
Without doubt the fish sold on the public markets is fresh.
But there are also official rules about the minimum lenght those fresh products should have
What to pay Less than average
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.
In Venice you can buy some fresh vegetables or fruit at some greengrocer's, at some stalls and even from some boats.
The Pescheria sells fresh fish and seafood and has been on this site for six centuries. The current structure was built in 1917.
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
As well as the markets of Rialto selling fish you can stumble across little stalls in the back streets - this one we passed as we crossed Canareggio towards Campo Santa Maria Nuova.
These markets are opened on most of the Piazzas in venice.
What to buy All the fresh fruits and vegitables.
There are no more fresh than the markets of Italy
What to pay Low prices than any supermarket.
