Rialto Market is a treat for the senses, with artistic piles of peaches and cherries, artichokes, and red chicory from Treviso.
Fruit, vegetables, and fish are strictly seasonal. It celebrates life in all its fullness a lively place with many local people and lots of tourists!
The location of the Rialto market is northwest of the Rialto Bridge in the district of San Polo.
In February 2004 my wife and I spent several days in Venice with my parents. We booked an old Venetian apartment through a website called Venetian-Rentals. It was lavishly furnished with old books and paintings. The plan for this trip was to get some fresh reference for me to do some new paintings of Italy.
On one particular day we checked out the fish market by the Rialto Bridge
and we came across this amazing scene, full of life, movement and colour.
