It was exotic and made me think of some markets in other countries. It is hughe and pretty safe, but the quality of some products might not be the top. Good for fruit, but certainly I would be careful with the fish and some meat...

The market is really a representation of the way the locals work. Its very busy, packed, and has from meat to clothes and toys. Even though you might not buy anything, its really worth going for a walk there. It is outdoors, and a bit packed, so keep your children in close proximity. There is an indoors part as well,...

This is the main market of Turin - very bustling, with small and at times crowded corridors between the most wonderful produce from northern Italy. My advice is leave your valuables at your hotel (not due to any particular risk, but so that you won't be concerned about them) and purchase some great ingredients for a home cooked meal or... More

The market is active I presume every day, but the Saturday Event, is huge, and you can find from a lot of fake or cheap clothing from China and other third world countries to exciting food places, and farmers that bring their produce, it maybe dangerous for your wallet, but I felt very safe, and I can say, great fruit...

We had learned of this open air market before traveling here, but upon check-in at our apartment we were warned not even to wear any jewelry if we went to this market. It was quite chaotic with the frequent appearance of "creeps", but I don't think it was quite that crime-ridden. It was not easy to find a fish market,... More

I am used to visiting markets in many countries. This one is unique in that it has a variety of everything, organised in sections according to the item being sold, and has a mixture of food, vegetables, clothes, jewellery, bags and all one might want.

Most of us have been there and done it and got the T-Shirt (usually from Markets like these). In the USA they are called Flea Markets. We've been to many across the World and they mostly follow the same formula. They have more mobile phone cases/covers than you can believe. But there are some amazing bargains in the clothing markets... More

Crossroad of all migratory wave which has hit the city in the past 100 years. From the nineties on Porta Palazzo has seen extensive intervention by the authorities. Today is a hot spot of trade and tourism. Yet the market area is still considered a dangerous place by night. Saturday is the market day par exellance as the Baloon market... More
