Time Out says

Source of all that’s good and fresh on Venetian plates.

West of the Rialto Bridge and all around the church of San Giacometto stretch the stalls of the Rialto market – the best place in Venice to buy seasonal fruit, veg and seafood. It’s the heartbeat of this quintessentially mercantile city, where locals have been mingling and trading goods for almost a thousand years. The market specializes in food from the lagoon – slimy, slithering creatures of the deep, many of which you’ll be hard-pressed to identify. With its Grand Canal frontage, this must surely count as one of the world’s most atmospheric shopping venues.
