    Very good supermarket, close to Taormina if you have a car. Fresh fish and meat counter with reasonable prices.

    Near to the cathedral and behind the fountain, this place is a must to visit. A snap shot of Sicilian life with loads of big characters buying and selling fish that has been freshly caught that day. Wait around for a while and they might even sing!!
    We stopped by one young chaps stand to try his oysters €2 a pop with lemon pepper and Tabasco if you want. They were stunning. So much so we went the next day and had it again but on this occasion he was doing a taster platter with a plate piled high with prawns, clams, oysters and sea urchin for €17(for 2 people). A surprising gastronomic experience.
    If we were self catering I would be here everyday to get fresh fish. Can’t get better at the price.

    A good outdoor mall. Customer service was actually better than expected. Good prices for shoes and it exposed us to brands that we were no familiar with. Overall, very good.

    There are several traditional markets in Palermo. We went to both Capo and Vucciria but if I had limited time and had to choose, I’d pick Capo. It was larger, more lively, more interesting and had a greater range of more appealing street food.

    For those who care to look there’s a lot of interesting foodstuffs here. Herbs, spices, olives, live lobsters, small sharks and giant octopus. Best of all are the huge swordfish. Stallholders tie the swords with ropes, lashing them to a railing so that the heads are raised up and the blades are on full display.

    We watched fishmongers expertly slice through the flesh of these giant fish with cleavers, then carry away the massive heads in both arms. We browsed the colourful mountains of local fruit and veg and tasted Sicilian street food (although I drew the line at the spleen sandwich).

    What you see here is a real working street market, not the sort where you find endless, plastic tourist tat and copy sunglasses, copy handbags etc. Fruit stalls are made out of upended crates and people have worked here for generations. We noticed that we were never pestered or pressured to buy. You can just wander and look. However, if you are buying street food, I’d recommend checking the price before you order. We picked out several things from the cart and then sat to eat them but when the bill arrived, it was quite expensive. As we hadn’t checked prices when ordering, I suspect they may have been jacked up accordingly.

    The thing I liked most was that in the middle of the market, behind awnings and fruit crates is an old Baroque church, Chiesa dell'Immacolata Concezione. It seemed so unexpected and incongruous to have a church in the midst of the market but of course it’s perfectly normal in Palermo and that’s part of the charm.

    GETTING THERE: From Teatro Massimo, it took less than 5 min to walk there.

    We were hoping to find more of a variety considering the location. There were few sizes available of various models be it shoes or clothing. Would have liked to have more of a choice. Prices very similar to what one would find locally, in my country of origin. So really not quite what I expected.

    This is a small fish market, but, nonetheless, very interesting. It was busy with local people buying for their dinner. There was a good range of fish, lovely gambas. My favourite was the fishmonger using old style scales to weigh the fish. A good little local fish market, full of local character with nice little harbour to the rear.

    First time visit. Beautiful layout and a very good range of shops. Food court is very good but limited inrange, though we did enjoy eating there. Conveniently located especially if travelling by personal car. Closeto other outlets. A visit is a must for any visitors.

    Stopped in this market for something to eat on way to a performance.ance at Teatro Massimo. It had a good buzz and I can imagine it's great fun later at night- unfortunately I don't make it back to see!

    You can't be in Palermo and not go to at least one of its main markets. The sights, the sounds, the smells are something else. For someone who is simply perusing without any aim to buy, the hustle may get overwhelming pretty quickly. Which is probably the reason Vucciria - the most compact of the three - is my favorite.

    One of the best town in Sicily is certainly Sciacca, in the south west coast. There are a lot of attractions, but the fish market is a very show.

    For someone that likes to experience the smells, sights and sounds of how the locals shop this is a good place to stroll.

    We have a very nice experience, visiting Pinacoteca Zelantea without knowing how we could enter. We were wondering inside the Library and a very nice Library worker took us to visit the pinacoteca. Amazing art objects, sculptures, paintings etc.
