Great market to visit when you’re in Cagliari. But be smart and go a bit earlier than us. We didn’t know the exact times and arrive just before 14:00 when the market was already closing down.

We made the mistake of not realising that there was just food at the market. We did enjoy it and we were happy to have gone.

Two floor market, one floor with mainly fish, other floor with meat, cheese, vegetables,... We went on a Saturday noon, the market was stuffed. Great experience, would like to have this market next door at home :-)

A nice local market. Great to see the types of fish and meats available and the speciality of some of the traders.
