Best Markets in Milan
No matter where you go in Italy, markets are ubiquitous, and Milan is no exception. While Milan may be famous for its high-end expensive Italian designer boutiques there is also a good variety of markets where you can pick up some real bargains.
The locals spend a lot of their time in the markets of Milan. You’ll be able to find anything you want whether it’s fresh produce, furniture, antiques, or clothes. Wandering over the markets is definitely a fun thing to do in Milan. It’s a great way to meet new people, mix with the locals and see a completely different side to life in Milan.
There are a few markets that will have the facilities to pay by card, but it’s recommended to pay for your goods in cash. Things are much cheaper, so you’ll end up spending more in the conversion rates if you pay by card.
At the farmers’ markets in Milan, there’s less room for bargaining, but when it comes to buying things like antiques and pre-loved items, fighting over the price is almost expected, so don’t be afraid to try out a bit of your Italian on some of the locals.
