Markets in Emilia-Romagna on Sat/Sun

thomco | Apr 15, 2010 12:19 PM

I'm going to be in Emilia-Romagna on Sat (4/24) and Sun (4/25). I am hoping to do some shopping in the open air and food markets.

On Saturday, I will be exploring Parma, Reggio Emilia, and Modena. I will be having lunch at Hosteria Giusti in Medena, which I understand is also an excellent Salumeria. What days are the open air markets in these towns (or other surrounding towns?)

On Sunday, I will be in Bologna. I was disappointed to read in 'Italy for the Gourmet Traveler' that most food markets in Bologna are closed on Sunday. Furthermore, Sunday Apr 25 is Liberation Day. Will that mean more things will be closed? Will there be interesting events in Bologna to celebrate this holiday?

Thanks in advance,
Thomas
