tourist trap
Jul 2021
watch out, many businesses raise their prices twice as much to scam tourists, what a pitiful squalor!

The best fish market in Sicily
Sep 2020
This market was very active when I was there. It is the best fish market in Sicily, really authentic. Also, a good place to buy pitaya figs and alike. Good prices from the locals.

Amazing

Our second trip to Sicily and I couldn't wait to see the fish market again. It was definitely something that I think of when I think of Catania. Amazing fish display and activity. There are lots of stalls that sell fruits and vegetables as well as meats but they aren't quite as fascinating. Definitely would recommend.

Authentic and the very best one in Sicily at least
Dec 2019 • Business
If you like to take a very best pictures... Yes go to Cztania fish market.
It s impressed how they manage to keep this market in a very central location. When you entered to the market it s like traveling to the past for min. 60years.
You ll feel like to be a part of a nice old italian movie.
Of course you will find out also many nice best Italian fruits like lemons,oranges,vegetables,pistaccios... Dolce, beutifull piza pasta spots.. Dont forget to take a coffee and just to watch and to enjoy all locals everyday rituals

Fly blown
Sep 2019
Popped into the market as we love to experience people selling local fayre in a traditional setting
Given the heat im not sure how wise our decision was! Very smelly (as you’d expect) but the flies weren’t great!
Didn’t hang around long
Loved the veg and hardware market up by via etnea though

For country market lovers
Aug 2019
Some of us love country markets, and Italian markets are among the most beautiful and interesting.
Venice, Syracuse, Palermo, and now Catania, almost all the Italian cities have their market.
This one sells fish of course but also fruit and vegetables...
This is a good opportunity to take some special photos and I do recommend visiting it with your camera.
Fish bunks are of course the most interesting.
Make sure to be there before 2pm because when we were there, arounf 2pm it was closing and it was a pity.

Lovely and colourful
Sep 2019 • Friends
Our apartment was close by so we went most days. There is a good selection of fish and further on lovely fruit and vegetables. If you want to stay for lunch there are lots of restaurants but the most well known is the small stall on the balcony overlooking the market. It sells cones of freshly cooked fish, there are lots of choices. The 7 euro one is a lovely mix and is fresh and delicious. There are small tables and stools, open in the evening as well . Market closes at lunch time.

Lively and colourful market
Jan 2019 • Couples
Our hotel overlooked this market, and so we watched it set up every morning.

On leaving the hotel we walked through the market, and only wished that we could purchase some items to take home and cook. Wonderful fresh produce, beautifully presented. Colourful and noisy.

An authentic piece of life in Catania and worth visiting.
