The old market which it has felt going to life. Also it can buy fresh vegetable, fruit, meat or fish, also it can try fried sea food or anti-pasti.

A nice little market with fresh fruit and veg, dried spices, local almond biscuits, a great fish market and some small restaurants. One stand in particular was nice, an oyster and glass of wine for €2.50. The freshest and most amazing tasting oysters I've ever...More

Our BandB was above the north end of the market, so we had a nice bird's eye view of it. If I lived on Ortigia, I would shop there daily. Fish, shellfish, squid, octopus, herbs, spices, nuts, and seasonal vegetables and fruit.

A hussle busstle market full of character and fantastic fresh produce. We stayed in a villa 30 miles south in Fontane Bianche, an easy drive, with good parking, The marina,the castle and the promenade walks make this a must visit,

An wholly enjoyable shopping experience. The sellers were patient, the product fresh and the prices reasonable. The numerous varieties of tomatoes all looked terrific, the spices fresh and fragrant (particularly the oregano) and the fish sparkled. It's not a huge market, but has everything you...More

A very genuine open air market for any type of food. A must see for all tourists in Ortigia even if you don't have a kitchen. If you have rented an apartment with kitchen, which is what you should do in Ortigia, you can find...More

One of the best food markets ever. Small but nice. The products are local, very fresh and not expensive. A couple of small shops and bars with delicious local food and drinks.
