Cooking in Venice

First chow post but long time surfer of wonderful information. We are 2 couples starting a 3-week trip of northern Italy with 4 nights in Venice in 2 weeks.
We have an apartment in dorsoduro with (I think) a well-equipped kitchen. Since we will be eating very well in many a restaurant across the north, I thought since prices are high and quality maybe not the highest in Venice, we should cook at least a couple of meals at home. 100 euros might go a long way in procuring some fresh seafood/meat, produce, oil,wine and cheese for a satisfying meal….and some leftovers….
We like to cook.
So my questions are, with our location in dorsoduro, where best to shop for ingredients.
Which markets,cheese shops,wine shops ect. would you suggest. We don’t mind walking for the goodies. And leftovers(litre of oil) are fine as we will have kitchens at every stay on this trip.
Thanks for any ideas/suggestions and thanks for such a great board.
Our other stops are in Verona, Barga, and ending in Florence. Any tips for these appreciated also!
