If you are looking to buy and taste locally grown fresh produce then you are in the right place. Mercato San Benedetto is one of the biggest fresh produce markets in Europe. Opened in 1957, it is a two level structure of about 4,000 square metres each. The fish-seafood department is located on the ground floor (a must see) while the fresh produce sections such as, meat, cheese, fresh baked bread, locally grown organic fruit and vegetables are located on the upper floor. There are about 240 stalls available to visit and buy products from. If this is not part of your travel guide itinerary then you must include it. It is not your typical market. The vendors are extremely friendly and welcoming while offering their costumers a once in a lifetime experience. Savour a couple of hours mingling with the locals and tourists while visiting this lively market.
