Ticino. Markets, Boutiques and Shopping Malls. Shopping in Ticino is a particularly great pleasure. In the numerous boutiques and shopping malls, you will certainly find what you are looking for. What is more, in many towns and small cities local markets are set up during the week, offering our indigenous products that range from flowers to vegetables, from cheese to sausages and eggs. The different stands also offer handicrafts, jewellery, clothes and, of course, souvenirs. From local markets to high end brand boutiques, as you can find in the renowned Via Nassa in Lugano, to modern shopping centers, there is only one step. Ticino offers shopping for any taste and any price range!
Tipps. Saturday market | Bellinzona: The Bellinzona market is a popular event that has been claimed to be one of the best traditions in Ticino. In the city's historic district, among the signs of the ancient inns, multicoloured well prepared stalls draw in visitors to buy fresh top-quality products, at favourable prices. The market offers the best vegetable and fruit products of the season; delicatessen prepared following ancient home-made recipes and delicious cheeses from the valley are on sale, along with the delicious local bread. Next to the joys of the table other objects are available, from knick-knacks to clothing, from hardware supplies to the best handcrafted products, some made right there in front of the curious visitor. The market has become a fun place to meet the people and many restaurants offer typical lunches at moderate prices.
