You can get everything you need here, produce, cheese, meats, bread, wine. If you are self-catering in Bologna I highly recommend this market.

With market stalls selling everything from hams and cheeses through to fish and oils and everything in between,this is great spot to appreciate Bologna and it's culinary heritage. There's also a small but beautiful food court selling pizza and salads etc.

Reasonable variety. Good fruit and veg. Cheap fresh “fast food” and snacks. Lots of locals. Probably worth a visit but overall perhaps not as good as the more central old market streets.

My wife cooked each evening we were in Bologna and it was quite a delight in itself to pick out fruit and veg from this market. They also have fish there and a small cafe.

Visiting a local market in Bologna is a must. Although the "food tours" within the city are big business, they fall flat on thier face. Didn't waste my time over my 6 night stay in Bologna to do a city food tour and pretty happy...More

Yes, although at busy times the alleyways you use to get there are full of people and chairs from nearby bars and restaurants. Despite this there is room. Once inside again, it is busy but there is no reason why wheelchairs... More
