Mercato Ballaro


Mercato Ballaro

Vicolo Del Carmelo, Palermo

Give your kids a walk-through education in seasonal produce, fresh Mediterranean seafood and the basic ingredients of delicious Italian and Sicilian cuisine. La Vucciria is Palermo’s oldest market, but Ballarò has replaced it in recent years as the most lively and authentic display of Italian ingredients and good-natured bartering.

You can visit on your own or as part of a Palermo city tour. And early mornings (from 8 a.m.) are the time to see the most action.


Daily, 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
