We are walking through the deserted streets to get an early view of the Rialto Bridge without a ton of tourists in the way and to go to the Rialto Market. For over 700 years the Rialto Market has been the place for fresh, seasonal, local food.  The Rialto area of Venice was one of the first areas to be developed. Trading of all kinds took place here along the water’s edge, where Venetians and merchants bought and sold exotic imported goods, just unloaded from the ships. In the 16th century, following a massive fire, a complex of squares and porticoes was constructed at the west end of the Rialto Bridge, with areas dedicated to different products. This area is still noted in the names of local lanes and squares. Erberia, (fruit and vegetable market) Nananzeria, (oranges) Speziali, (spices) and Pescaria, (fish) are just a few.  Also, there are now food stores around the market selling gourmet foodstuffs, oils, wine, pasta, and regional specialties. The locals still get up early and shop at the market! Follow suite or you will be in the frenzy of tourists! Enjoy!
