San Leonardo's little market with its colourful offering still catches the attention of many people passing by while on the Strada Nuova main street
Since its foundation after WWII, the San Leonardo Market has been providing the local population, and in particular the inhabitants of the Cannaregio district, with fresh fruits and vegetables.
Just as for the Rialto Market, the decrease of the Venetian population, the change in habits, and the competition of supermarkets has led the market to shrink in size over the decades. Nonetheless, the view of this little market with its colorful offering still catches the attention of many people passing by on the busy Strada Nuova.
While the current situation led many owners in San Leonardo to sell their vegetables stand license, Marco and Nicolò, two young Venetian brothers, have decided to work even harder to keep their family business running and guaranteeing their fond customers great products and a wonderful service.
So if you’re in the Cannaregio area, looking for great raw materials and in particular local production and local delicacies, and you’re willing to support Venetian family businesses, you should definitely consider checking out Marco&Nicolo’s stand!
