Local Street Markets are very common in Sicily: this is the best way to meet the locals, busy with their shopping, maybe bargaining with the street vendors, touching and tasting the food on the stalls, searching through mountains of clothes, looking for the best quality and price.
The Sicilian name for local market is "fera", fiera in Italian, fair in English.
Almost every small city has its own Local Street Market:
on Tuesday morning in Riposto, in Via Piersanti Mattarella
on Thursday morning in Giarre, in Via Campania
on Saturday morning in Recanati - Giardini naxos zone
on Wednesday morning in Taormina, in Via L. Da Vinci-Via Von Gloeden
on Saturday morning in Mascali, in Via Rosario Livatino
