The market is busy in the morning with locals shopping for fish, meat, poultry, fruits, spices, veggies, etc. There are few tourists in the off-season - especially when we were here - January 2018. So, it was enjoyable to stroll through the market which is...More

The market is really nice, lovely products and gnammy food Due to the high amount of turists walking by, I have noticed some sellers get advantage of the less careful buyers and try to make a little extra profit by "cheating" sort to speak... Do...More

It was interesting walking through the Mercato to see what all the vendors were selling. Clothing, food, spices. Hats are a big draw here. A number of stalls just selling hats and you really need one in Sicily. The fresh fish being cut. Also, some...More

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.

I do not recall any jewellery on sale in the markets in Ortigia. There are a few high-end shops on the Corso. A visit to Syracuse is a very good idea. There is great architecture in Ortigia; the Duomo, for example. And... More
