City of Turin - Torinoplus – Balon et Gran Balon

Balon et Gran Balon

The Balôn market gets its name from the area with the same name located behind Porta Palazzo. In the mid-19th century, the place was frequented by Torino’s junk dealers: it is now the ideal place to discover shops that offer every kind of product, including those made by hand.

Saturday is market day, heart if this area so tied to popular tradition. The second Sunday of the month is the Gran Balôn’s turn: from toys to antique furniture, from lace to collector’s items, a variety of options that make this market an attraction for people coming from all over Italy.
