City Market

  Verdieva     more than a year ago
Together with the nearby National Theatre and its park, the Modello Palace and numerous residential, commercial and industrial buildings, the City Market forms a super urban architectural complex. At its core are beautiful art nouveau market halls, especially the lively fish market, which is in an imposing Liberty style building with charming mouldings by famous Venetian sculptor Urbano Bottasso of the poor crustaceans destined soon to hit your plate.
Don't miss the city's central market if you love to get the feel for real local atmosphere. Stalls piled high with fresh local produce and the cheery banter of traders and their customers are one of the everyday pleasures of this part of the world. The market is a good place for speciality delicatessen, and the lively fish market at the end closest to the sea is a must if you have the means to cook your own! The pleasant streets of the market area are lined with fast food takeaways and inexpensive konobas for a quick and authentic lunch – see the “Restaurants" section - plus a few pleasant cafés with leafy terraces.
