Top Markets in Catania

Top Markets in Catania

Tucked away on the eastern shores of Sicily with beautiful views over the Ionian Sea, coastal Catania ranks alongside neighboring Palermo as one of the largest cities in Italy. Here are your options for a little retail therapy among the traditional street markets in Catania.

Piazza Carlo Alberto (Carlo Alberto Square) Market

The outdoor markets in Piazza Carlo Alberto are a very traditional affair, with everything from household items and clothing to jewelry for sale—but explorers who delve a little deeper into the heart of the market are richly rewarded! Locals browse stalls of fresh produce for antipasti ingredients like fruit and vegetables, with cheeses, nuts, and other treats to complete the picture. If your Italian language skills are sharp, feel free to haggle away!

La Pescheria (The Fish Market)

Tucked away within easy reach of UNESCO World Heritage–listed Piazza Duomo (Duomo Square), Catania’s fresh fish market comes alive in the mornings, with busy buyers and traders jostling for a deal. With cheeses, olives, and tasty oils also available, it’s a foodie’s haven.
