  • שוק באלרו כמו שאר השווקים הסיצליאנים תוסס,רועש,כובש אותך בריחותיו ובשפע המציעים דוכניו.הוא מקיף שלוש רחובות שבכל אחד מהם מוצרים אחרים.כל מי שאוהב שוק הגעת לכתובת הנכונה. 
  • If you like spitting fighting burping and dri and smells this is the place to be ..stall holders sneezing all over their goods ..disgusting place 
  • It is the oldest market of the city, famous for the sale of foods (fruits and vegetables are the masters, but there are also meat and fish). Always very busy: you are literally driven between the stalls that invade the Street between the yells and chants of the traders. Some sellers offer items by road. Overall mix of sounds, smells and colors, of some interest, but not necessarily a "must see" in Palermo.

  • Nice place to visit in the centre, just close to the central station, it goes throw the centre from the beginning of Corso Tukory to Piazza Ballaro. Tastes and colours of Sicily are here with the tipical boiled, roast and fried Street food.
  • I'm a foodie so this place was so much fun. All the wonderfull food sicily has to offer. Venders shouting, people making deals and I was getting yelled at for taking pictures. :-) Worth the visit!!
  • A proper market the likes of which you can't find in Northern Europe. I just wouldn't buy any meat or fish there. And watch your wallets. Don't think of bringing a purse.
  • Very interesting food market. Anything is sold here. Prices are reasonable.
  • this one and the market of capo are historical markets where you find lots of colors, smells, flavors and sounds. it's a pleasure for senses!
