Going to one of the markets held weekly in the squares in Elba gives you a good opportunity to buy some typical, local products. Mostly in the historical part of each town, they are very lively, and are the perfect place if you are looking for something typically local, and why not, save money too.
The calendar you can see on this page will help you take part in the weekly unique colours and perfumes, in each commune, and as you go from stall to stall you will be able to find very good prices for a wide variety of products.
The market is in no way inferior to the larger city ones, and not only are there stalls selling fruit and vegetables, flowers and plants, clothes and household products, but there are also stalls where you can buy typical products from Elba as well as regional and Italian specialities. During the summer, as well as being set up in all seven communes, they are also held in many seaside holiday resorts, like Bagnaia, Cavo and Lacona.
During the summer, there are also characteristic evening markets in the squares and along the streets in Marciana Marina, Capoliveri, Portoferraio and Porto Azzurro where you will find small, colourful handicrafts like watercolours, shells, minerals, pottery and that special something to take back with you as a souvenir of your holiday in Elba.
