Market Days in Orvieto?

saltyK9 Jul 25, 2009 05:24 AM

Would anyone be able to confirm that Orvieto has a market on both Thursdays and Saturdays? And while we are at it, any recommendations for markets in the towns near Orvieto?
Thanks in advance.

    The food market in Orvieto centro runs on thursday mornings. By 1pm everything will shut down. It's a beautiful town with great artisanal shops in addition to the weekly food market . Take time to walk it.

      Thanks for the information. We will undoubtedly spend plenty of time in Orvieto. We are looking for a Saturday morning food market to start our week in a nearby villa (we'll be arriving at the Rome airport on Friday and driving to the countryside), somewhere between Rome and Orvieto. Any suggestions?

        When I visted Orvieto in 2007 there was a street market on Sat morning. There's nothing like a little porchetta to get you going.
