This food market has much to offer and was one of my favorite adventures in Palermo. Every vendor yells out in a deep voice what they are selling, sometimes the deep shout comes from a boy who looks no older than 13.
We found the most delicious fresh strawberries, along with lemons, oranges and olives, all that were then wrapped up in newspaper for us to take as our lunch. The market neighbourhood reminded me a lot of Old Cairo it was just as if the mosques had been replaced with Churches, but it was very similar.
All around were men shucking artichokes and keeping water on the fish, many would ask for a photo as I walked by (it’s hard to miss a large shiny red Nikon DSLR). It was hard not to buy all the food they had to offer as everything looked so much more fresh and cheap even then what we have up here in Rome.
