Fodor's Expert Review Ballarò Market

Palermo Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Wind your way through the Albergheria district and this historic market, where the Saracens did their shopping in the 11th century—joined by the Normans in the 12th. The market remains faithful to seasonal change as well as the original Arab commerce of fruit, vegetables, and grain; though these days it sees more tourists than locals, it's still fun to experience. Go early; the action dies out by 4 pm most days.
