Markets in Milan Part 1/2 – Fiera di Senigallia

There are many markets and fairs in Milan. I went to two fairs and one is called Fiera di Senigallia. I went there because my bicycle is broken :( Now you might think “oh Lati, you are so hipster, you bike everywhere!” The truth is – I bike everywhere not because I have a environmentally-conscious mind, but it’s really for the convenience (and to save money).

There’s a huge second hand bike market in Milan (which means there are bike thieves everywhere); in fact, I got my 2nd hand bike from a flea market in Piazza Cuoco. Back to topic – I went to Fiera di Senigallia because they are famous for selling 2nd hand bikes and bicycle parts. I was quite surprised when I got there because 2nd hand bikes were only a small part of what this market offers. You could find second hand clothes, bonkers, old electronics, cheap leather jackets…etc I would definitely recommend this place to all the punks and maybe hippies out there!!! To be honest though, I wouldn’t have gone there by myself. The market was full of shady-looking people and the ratio of females to males is really low (maybe I’m exaggerating). But it’s safe because there were policemen on stand-by outside the market. Anyway, I was looking to trade in a new 2nd hand bike but the decent ones were all too expensive (like asking price EUR150)! So instead, I paid EUR8 to get my bike fixed…

Here are some pix that I took at the fair:
