  • Shopping in Turin  – "Turin is not the best Italian city for fancy shopping.You have Milan or Rome for that. Although there are plenty of small and expensive brand shops, you’ll realize that shopping style differs depending on the streets you’re walking on. You can find everything, from the upscale brands to the world-spread cheap chains in via Roma, to more alternative shops, bookstores and “bancarelle” in via Po.There are no big shopping malls in the centre, for that go to Lingotto or Le Gru. The most popular pedestrian streets also among the locals are via Garibaldi, via Lagrange and via Carlo Alberto. But we suggest you to go also to trendy neighborhoods Quadrilatero Romano or as well to San Salvario, where you can find plenty of small shops which sell clothes and products made by locals. After passing Quadrilatero Romano you will arrive at the flea market in Porta Palazzo, the Balon. Moreover, once a month, on each 2nd Sunday, there's the Gran Balon." – "about us" – Source: Like A Local – "SKIP THE TOURIST TRAPS! Explore like a local"
