The Ballarò market is a historical and permanent market in Palermo, which runs along Piazza Casa Professa up to the ramparts of Corso Tukory towards Porta Sant’Agata. Less frequented by tourists, it is the market where the people of Palermo go shopping, surrounded by the “abbanniata”, the characteristic cry of sellers trying to attract the attention of passers-by. In the Middle Ages, the Ballarò market offered fine meats, fish and spices from the Deccan, transported by caravans. Today we find local produce together with clothes and much more. Because it is frequented at every hour of the day, the market also offers cooked food, including the typical street food of Palermo.
