Italy has a great tradition when it comes to street markets. Every city has at least one grocery market or, if the town is too little, there will be one in a city nearby. Turin has a lot of markets but there is one every first Sunday of the month that has a different soul. It’s not for your groceries, nor for common shopping. San Salvario Emporium puts together different ways to be creative.
You can find furniture made of recycled wood or other materials. You can book a place in some labs and create your personalized paper notebook, learn some home gardening tricks, or create some props. You can also stop by for lunch and a drink. Then you can have another look and find some vintage clothing or some badass belts and purses.
I’m an “alternative jewelry” junkie so, to find me easily in the crowd, you’ll have to look at the glass jewelry corner or at the ceramics one. They’re too cute not to be bought! The market will take place even with rain as Piazza Madama Cristina has a roof. So be creative, enjoy your shopping, and discover San Salvario during the daytime.
The upcoming event is on 3rd December 2023!
