Mercato Vucciria

Palermo's vibrant outdoor markets beckon exploration, and among them, the renowned Mercato Vucciria, affectionately known as La Vucciria, stands out. For seven centuries, Palermo's oldest market has been a fixture in the historic heart of Piazza San Domenico, offering a kaleidoscope of activity as vendors offer everything from seafood, fruits, and vegetables to a diverse mix of handcrafted creations. Opening its doors every day except Sunday, the morning hours unveil the market's vibrant energy, making it the prime time for exploration.


Shopping in Palermo is a true delight: a city where you'll find a little bit of everything, from boutiques of high fashion to colourful markets selling fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish, as well as clothes and crafts. At the street markets, you'll find great bargains and experience the unique Palermitan atmosphere. The largest historical markets are La Vucciria, Capo, and Ballarò. If you're looking for famous Italian fashion brands instead, head over to Via Libertà, a street lined with both Italian and European high fashion labels. When in Palermo, bring a typical, hand-craft souvenir back home that can remind you of your trip: painted pottery, coral jewellery, copper-ware or food delicatessen.
