Mercato di Forte dei Marmi

Wednesday mornings you can find an outdoor market (mercato) on the streets of the seaside, Tuscan town of Forte dei Marmi.  This is no ordinary street market as Forte dei Marmi is known for upscale, designer brand shopping.  (This town has approximately 7000-8000 residents and two Prada stores alongside many other premium brands.)  Needless to say you can find deals on cashmere, clothing, dishes, handbags, shoes etc as the cliental are quite discerning.  My husband and I made a morning of it strolling the market in the morning with a lovely breakfast of cappuccino and brioche.

Every kind of belt you could imagine
