La Vuccirìa


Sicily for free Sicilian Markets Markets

La Vucciria is the most famous market in Palermo. It is a vibrant and lively market with its loud sellers yelling their wares and selling a wide variety of things ranging from fresh fish, bread, vegetables, fruit, cheeses, preserves to dried fruits and spices of North African origin.

Our biggest memory of the Vucciria is the swordfish from which the fishmonger carved bloody steaks and sold them within seconds. What a show!

Try a sea urchin or the local speciality: boiled spleen in a bread roll called 'pani ca' meusa' (only for brave eaters!). If you want to sit down and just watch the life pass by - there are few trattorias nearby.

There are also ceramics and cute espresso cups on sale which would make a lovely gift or souvenir.

La Vuccirìa market has become quite touristy, but is still worth a visit. We also like very much the Ballarò market and Il Capo.
