"Move to the stores" Markets - Mercati Tip by BruceDunning
Markets - Mercati, Venice: 38 reviews and 84 photos
The boats/vaperettos carry the burden of getting goods to the islands daily. They seem to do that with ease. All types of goods are transported into the city to serve the retail, food and nick knack industry for the establishments. It is absolutely amazing that this all works so smoothly. many stores compete so heavily with its neighbor that it is hard to figure why more store fronts are not boarded up. On the other hand, many tourists come by daily along the routes, and it only takes one to buy to make their day. I have great respect for the proprietors who treat all tourists with dignity, and tolerate many foreign traits that can be irritating. The Rialto market has been in operation since 1097 to vendors of fish, fruits, meats and spices. It is a daily routine for the locals to come here and shop. I did not see any supermarcato in Venice.
