The Bari Market is also worth a visit; here, vendors guarding their open-air stalls have been selling their goods for hundreds of years. Though most of the products are food items (especially fresh fruits and vegetables), you may also find housewares, antiques and other trinkets suitable for souvenirs here. As Bari is a port city well known for fishing and Mediterranean trade, you can probably find some very fresh seafood and exotic baubles here.There are also three large shopping malls around Bari that have outlets around Europe: Auchan (in Cassamassima, about 12miles to the south), Carrefour (in Bari Nord, Tangenziale exit #6) and Euromercato (on Via Pasteur, Tangenziale exit #10).
