Here are some special markets in Umbria, the best known. These often take place all day.
Palazzo della Prefettura, in summer, Rocca Paolina, in winter, last weekend of the month. The main attraction here are ceramics, from the most precious to the most utilitarian, all colourfully decorated with patterns in use for centuries. Antique costume jewellery is another highlight.
Piazza Mazzini, Sunday before the 21st in March, June, September and December. In case you didn't figure out the puzzle, this market takes place at the beginning of each of the four seasons, to which it is dedicated. The fifty stands sell small inexpensive items, mostly, against the backdrop of the 14th-century church of Santa Croce.
Piazza Comunale, last week in March. Leading antique dealers from all over Italy gather to sell furniture, paintings, rugs, bronze figures and antique ceramics.
Every year on November 11th Saint Martin's day from the Piazzale della Consolazione up to the Piazza del Popolo are market stalls with porchetta sandwiches, sheep cheeses, shoes, clothes and much more. Blog post: A yearly market in Todi "San Martino".
Historic center of town, second Sunday of the month.
Città di Castello
Town center, third Sunday of the month.
