The Isola Market is a newly renovated place to sit, chat and eat something tasty in Piazzale Lagosta. Open daily, from 9:00 am to midnight, the ten historic neighbourhood market stalls sell meats, salami, cheeses, pasta, fish, pastries and much more, food can also be cooked to order and eaten in the outdoor area.
From the legendary decades-old butcher's shop, to the baker, the vibrant fruit stall, dishes that mix Caribbean ingredients and oriental flavours, craft beers, natural wines, Italian artisanal products and fresh fish ready to eat, there is something for all tastes. Not forgetting the butcher shop that sells meats from all over the world, including zebra or kangaroo.
Community engagement is also very important: an artisan ice cream parlour with pastry shop under the expert eye of Viviana Varese, the 1-star Michelin chef, is managed by an all-female team, thanks to the collaboration with the CADMI women’s charity which donates 1 euro for every kilogram of ice cream sold.
The sustainability values that characterise the forward-thinking Isola district are also evident here as the market is completely plastic-free.
The perfect place to enjoy a mix of tradition and innovation, right in the heart of the neighbourhood.
