Together with the Ancient Greek and Baroque beauties, Ortigia historic food market is a must-visit place when you travel to Syracuse.
This market takes place every morning (except Sunday) and is characterized by the evocative and lively atmosphere of the Italian markets. Vendors shouting and gesticulating, fascinating colors, the smell of fresh produce, the catch of the day and local herbs, everything is so authentic and alive.
Do not forget to try the juicy tomatoes, cheese with chili peppers, seasoned olives, bright red chili peppers. . . all at remarkably affordable prices.
The best way to experience the food market is with a local, as they can teach you exactly how the city’s inhabitants shop every day. You’ll soon understand why Italy’s food markets are so important to our culture!
Visit the vibrant local market and immerse yourself in a private dining experience at a Cesarina's home, enjoy an exclusive cooking demo and taste authentic regional recipes treasured in family cookbooks passed down by real Italian Mammas. Feel the warmth of Italian hospitality as you connect with local people.
