The Mercato Albinelli is the oldest covered food market in the heart of Modena, a culinary haven brimming with local delights. Open from Monday to Saturday, between the hours of 7:00 and 15:00. Please note that the market remains closed on 25th December, as well as 1st and 2nd January.

Opening in 1931, this Italian gem is a treasure. Its Art Nouveau design and captivating sculpture, "The Fruit Bearer," by Giuseppe Graziosi, represent the market's extraordinary beauty and cultural significance.
