Food Market

Pisa Market stall and stallholder (

We love a traditional food market, and Pisa’s is located in several streets just off the main walkway, Via Borgo Stretto, north of the river.  The centre of the market is a small arcaded piazza, but stalls continue in the streets the other side. Fruit and veg stalls are common, but there are also vendors selling all kinds of other Italian culinary delights.  We enjoyed walking through the market and being part of its lively, colourful atmosphere.  This is an extract from our free Pisa City Guide.

The main part of the market is located in Piazza delle Vettovaglie, but often stalls continue through the arch.  You’ll also find some interesting history in the market area.  One of Pisa’s huge ancient towers is located here (Torre del Campano).  There are 4 ancient towers in this central part of Pisa.  The market is open daily (except Sunday) from 7am till 1.30pm although some sellers are there longer into the afternoon.
