The market was not big but absolutely worth going. It was full of life and a great place to see the huge fish of Sicily. You can also buy fresh fruit in low price.

Fresh seafood at its best. Fish, swordfish, squid, octopus and more. A lot of yelling but to interest the buyers. Also fresh vegetables, grilled artichokes and onions. A great way to decide what to have for dinner even if you are eating out. Not for...More

This place is indeed for lovers of fish and seafood. The fish are very fresh, probably caught the same morning. Another interesting detail is the atmosphere in the market, the way sellers advertise, shout and gesture. I saw some fish that I had never seen...More

Probably not. And the 1st of May is a Sunday when the market is generally dead. Better the day before when people buy fish and meat for the 1st of May bbq.
