Mercato Extravaganza

One of the best things about living in a large city is that there is always something to do. You just have to know where to look. Every couple of months, I go to the Visitor Info-point on Via Garibaldi and grab lots of booklets/pamphlets to find out what’s going on in Torino.

Last week, Carlo and I went to the Extravaganza Mercato in Piazza Carlo Alberto. This particular Mercato is there every 2nd Saturday of the month. (except July & August)


The caption in the booklet reads:


For lovers of everything vintage and period pieces: clothes, accessories, fashion jewelry, furnishing items, knick-knacks, musical instruments.


This Mercato had lots of great stuff. I can’t wait to see what they will have in September when it opens again.


Afterwards, Carlo and I went back to our new favorite Gelateria that I previous mentioned (here). We’re quickly becoming friends with the owner and look forward to many more gelati with him!

  1. very interesting mercato!!! in my little town there is a saturday market with food and clothes and (in summer) there is a market with sweets, strange things, little souvenirs and other silly things! 😀


  2. Fun stuff! I LOVE that gray dress that was hanging in the one picture! I would have totally splurged on that and made Matt take me somewhere where I could wear it. lol
