The mercato has changed a lot and is now mostly selling cheap chinese clothes. The food is overprized ... and we bought some specialities that tasted like their best days were long gone. Sad.

You can stroll for hours, seeing bags, shoes, clothes, etc. Also the food part is amazing. Cheese, sausages, fruit, vegetables and many people to see and meet. Having a nice day in Luino

This marketplace is terrific. We have been there three times over the years. They have good leather products and the Italian meats and cheeses are outstanding.

Avoid the market in Luino. Unless you need 1000 stalls offering t-shirts, fake sunglasses, cheap shoes and other varieties of clothing. Or cheap "African" art and leather wares. If that is your fancy then it is the right place. If you look for anything authentic...More

As many reviewers already said, this is the famous big market which takes place in Luino every Wednesday (8:30am - 16:00pm). Clothes, local food products, bags, leather products (shoes, belts). Prices range very low (for made in China cheap stuffs) to pretty high (good genuine...More
