hello again, question about special markets

(1 answer)
By joss Traveller September 19, 2018

Hello again locals, this time I'd like to know about the difference between the Mercato della Terra, and the Mercato Ritrovato.
If these are two separate markets, I would like to know when each one operates (I believe only on Saturday for the Ritrovato?), and are they in the same location? I believe they are close to one another?
I am aware of the other markets in Bologna, but I would like to see these as well.
Grazie!

Hi Joss, so the Mercato Ritrovato and Mercato della Terra are the same markets, just recently changed its name to Ritrovato. This a really local and organic market, I definitely suggest you check it out. It's happening on Saturday morning from 9am till 2 pm in Via Azzo Gardino, 65
Bologna right in front of the Cineteca cinema. Enjoy! Gabriele

Grazie mille Gabriele - I will keep the Saturday free when we will be there. It interests me to see the difference between this market and the other more famous ones in Bologna.

This one is families and local go to buy local and bio food. Normally we don't buy grocery at the market in Pescherie Vecchie (Quadrilatero). Too expensive! Is becoming more of a touristic place to take some pictures!
Thank you for the advice Gabriele - we will be indeed looking for the less touristic shops and markets.
