While very popular with the local community, markets held all over the island are also a massive draw card for visiting tourists staying in nearby Sicily villas . They are tempted by the fantastic variety of local produce and craft and fashion items as well. No tourist likes to pass up the chance to pick up a bargain, and there are reportedly many to be had on renowned market days in famous Sicilian towns such as Palermo and Catania.

Locals and tourists flock to take advantage of the fantastic variety of wares on sale at the Piazza Trinita flea market in Masculucia.
