The Markets

Ever since the time in which foodstuffs were sold in the streets and squares, Alghero’s markets have been a hub of civic life.

 

 

Back in the 19th century, the port and the Piazza Civica would be filled with stalls selling fish, with grain being sold at the stalls in the Piazza del Teatro.

 

 

Today, Alghero’s City Market – located along Via Cagliari, Via Genova, Via Sassari and Via Mazzini – as well as the nearby fruit and vegetable market, represent more than just the focal point for the shopping trips of the local families; rather, they are like a modern-day agora, attracting visitors from far and wide, who are drawn there by the multitude of aromas and colours on offer.
