Mercato di Alba

The Alba market (mercato) is held every Saturday, whatever the season and weather may be. Piazza Risorgimento, via Cavour, via Vittorio Emanuele, Piazza Marconi and Piazza Garibaldi transform into a huge supermarket under the sky. From the first morning till lunchtime it’s a popular shopping place among people from Alba, nearest towns and villages.
