Street markets in Milan characterize the areas where they are housed. With the passing of time, each market has specialized in something different from the others by creating the “Tourism of the local market” in search of quality. In addition to regional markets, Milan offers many specialized markets and historical trade fairs.
Street markets in Milan have different features and different personalities, depending on the area. Markets in the centre are visited by well-heeled ladies wrapped in furs, browsing for cashmere and designer shoes. Further out from the centre, you’ll find Indian stallholders selling exotic fruit and hawkers with fake Gucci bags.
