Make sure to get there in the morning to check out the fresh produce and the full array if stalls. The smell of fish and sound of stall owners shouting is a fun experience regardless of whether you buy something.

The market was not big but absolutely worth going. It was full of life and a great place to see the huge fish of Sicily. You can also buy fresh fruit in low price.

Still, located under arches and with the vendors still cleaning up their store, one could get a whiff (no pun intended) of how the place must look during the day. A good reason to return.

Probably not. And the 1st of May is a Sunday when the market is generally dead. Better the day before when people buy fish and meat for the 1st of May bbq.
