Lake Garda weekly markets

Find out where they are and when.

by Marco Ghirello

The weekly markets of Lake Garda, with their colourful stalls, are very popular with the tourists who come here every year.

These places of trade and commerce have ancient origins and tell a fascinating story of culture and traditions.

Already during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, organised public markets developed throughout Italy, and soon became a vital place for the trade of products. Here, traders sold and bought foodstuffs, textiles, spices and many other things.

Today, weekly markets are still a very important element in the economy of Lake Garda. Each town has its own market, where local producers sell fruit, vegetables, cheese, fish and other local products.

The weekly markets on Lake Garda are also meeting places, where people talk about news and stories of everyday life. Despite the advent of supermarkets and online shopping, weekly markets are still thriving, keeping alive the atmosphere and customs of the past.

During the summer period, from Monday to Sunday, many foreign tourists come to the stalls to discover typical products such as wine or olive oil.

The following table provides a complete list of the weekly markets at Lake Garda.
