Despite Italy being famous for its haute couture and designers, shopping in the Italian markets still remains a popular activity for Italians. Visiting a local market in Italy is an experience and a half. Locals tend to shy away from the large commercial supermarkets and opt to shop at individual stalls in the market where they know the products they’re buying are fresh. Ask any Italian, old or young, rich or poor, and they’ll give you the same answer – markets in Italy are the best in the world no matter what you’re shopping for. If you’re looking for quality fresh food in Italy, you need to visit one of the local markets. Almost every neighborhood has one, and from the very north of Italy through to the southernmost point, you’ll find markets everywhere. When you visit an Italian market, you’ll get an insight into the daily lives of Italians. You’ll see friendly chit chat, arguing over prices, and vendors trying to enthusiastically persuade you that their produce is better than their neighbors.
