The market in Desenzano del Garda

Tuesday Market in Desenzano del Garda


Desenzano, thanks to its position of confluence between the Po Valley and the subalpine area and its large port, from the middle of the fifteenth century and for the next three centuries was the cereal market of Lake Garda, where weekly the fodder coming from the Mantovano was used to feed not only the population of the lake, but also the surrounding valleys and southern Trentino. It is from the market that Desenzano has drawn its wealth and the subsequent commercial and tourist vocation. Starting from 1567, the market day is Tuesday.
