The Rialto Market | Venice, Italy

Heather Bullard | Rialto Market

Scenes from a morning spent wandering the stalls at the Rialto Market. It’s an incredibly vibrant and lively place; overflowing with intoxicating bounty and delightful Italians. In my mind, this is always the best part of travel – mixing in with the locals and doing your best to chat it up using your broken language skills and awkward hand gestures. I can still recall the mushroom guy yelling to anyone within ear shot – “Funghi Freschi, Funghi Freschi”!

If you plan to visit go early. They open at 7am and vendors start packing things up just after noon.

The canal Vaporetto stop is Rialto…you can hop off, pick up a few things at the market, take a walk over the Rialto Bridge (snap some iconic photos) and look for a quiet place to have a picnic.
