The oldest local market in Palermo
The market of Piazza Caracciolo winds through alleys and adjacent streets, reflecting the true essence of the city, the energy and dynamism of the cosmopolitan culture of Palermo.
Formerly called "la Bucceria" from the French "boucherie", or butcher's shop, since it was initially intended for the sale of meat.
Because of the loud customary shouts and calls in markets, this term then became synonymous with noise, as well as with the sellers’ cries and the swarm of people in Palermo. By day, the Vuccirìa is a market where you can buy everything and anything, especially fruit, vegetables, fish and meat. But in the evening, it turns into Palermo’s nightlife meeting place always lively and full of fun, where music echoes until late at night and you can dine out on local delicacies.
