What is better than strolling in the early morning hours along the shore, listening to the noise of the sea, while the sun rises just a few metres away?
In Senigallia you can choose to relax on the golden beach or dedicate yourself to your favourite sport, visit an exhibition or attend a music show. If, instead, you want to identify yourself with the local life, make sure not to miss the fish market along Nino Bixio dock in Senigallia’s harbour.
The arrival of the fishing boats escorted by the impatient seagulls and the presentation of the catch of the day in the wooden stalls are an emotional sign of Senigallia’s personality and vitality. It’s a way to give a new life to the city’s maritime traditions, a meeting place for social and commercial life that you will enjoy with all your five senses.
An endless list of fish varieties is ready to be purchased: anchovies, the perfect ingredient for many recipes; sardines from the large “bluefish” family that is mainly fished in winter; mackerel, inexpensive and excellent for its nutritional values; mullet, known for its delicious meat; cuttlefish, sea food of high commercial and gastronomic value; mantis shrimps, very appreciated for both first and second dishes; mussels, easy to make and excellent to east, just like clams, and then grey mullets, sole fish, and much more.
The fish market is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day. The market includes two stalls with fruit and vegetables, as well as organic products.
