Cesano Maderno European Market – 16th year
The European markets of Fiva Confcommercio started in 2001, following the experiences gained in other countries. In simple terms, these are markets organised in public places with sellers from European Member States. However, they are much more than this: they have an added value that the market in a town square cannot provide.
With the support of the national Federation, of regional associations, of the Chambers of Commerce (CCIA), of local entities, of the UECA (Unione europea del commercio ambulante – EU street markets) these European street markets are held in the main squares of major cities, which take on an international flavour for a whole weekend.
They give Italian consumers exposure to the products of both Italian and European market sellers. In European markets, there are one hundred foreign companies, while there are around twenty Italian ones. The markets are made up of 30% food stalls and 60% non-food stalls, while the remaining 10% consists of administrative staff.
