Street Markets

A funkier side of Bologna shopping

Despite its modest size, Bologna is an Italian shopping powerhouse in various areas, from fashion to food. But there's another great side to retail therapy alla bolognese: open-air antiques and flea markets. Top contenders include the very popular Mercato dell'Antiquariato di Piazza Santo Stefano, an antiques market held the second week of the month in, of course, the Piazza Santo Stefano. Right nearby, the weekly Piazza Aldrovani Food Market is a very tasty smorgasbord of local goodies - a perfect end for your flea-marketing.
