This is a great market if you have a kitchen or for gathering a picnic. There is so much to choose from- produce, ham, cheese, many meat shops...Everything looked fresh and it was fun to see all of the typical food products.

Very clean yet functional market. All fresh produce on display and very good insight in what the locals buy and eat. the fish section was amazing in terms of variety and the freshness of the fish. It is only a short walk from the Cathedral.
