Like a mini Mercato Centrale you will delight in everything you see. I would go every morning. It's central and bustling and full of superb choices in baked goods, sandwiches, deserts and of course in Modena, TORTELLINI

What a place to visit. Easily got to from Bologna where we were staying by train. We tried 10,20 and 30 year old balsamic vinegar. The 30 year old was like molasses crossed with old port, fantastic. The range of seasonal local produce and fresh...More

We've just returned home to California after a tour of the Emilio-Reggiano region of north-central Italy, where we made a point of seeking out local markets, both indoors and out. Without a doubt, this was one of our favorites. Beautiful displays of food, reasonably-priced, lots...More
