Vucciria and other markets, Palermo: 16 reviews and 26 photos

Palermo has a rich artisan production. For example the production of artistic ceramics and of sicilian puppets and carts, copper and tin works in VIA CALDERAI, the making of chestnut wood and rush baskets near THE CALA and wrought-iron articles. A visit to the flea market (MERCATO DELLE PULCI), to browse among antique and modern and antique knick-knack, is of great interest. The confectioners offer many delicious cakes with ricotta cream (cannoli, casate etc.) and also cakes made from marzipan, the delicious marzipan fruits called 'frutti di martorana' and around all soul's Day, the socalled 'pupi a cera' these include knights, ladies and other figures made of sugar wich are offered to children during festivities.
