I found a little shop in Bari, that you can't miss in this city.
It's older Coffee Roaster, and you can try them coffee's blends, they'll grind for you fresh, for moka, espresso, or like you want.
They sell good wines, extra vergine oil, tea, spices, liquors, and more typical products from Bari and Puglia / Apulia.
Very good prices and quality.
It's connected by bus N° 27 that stop behind them.
Owner have good English and he'll explain story of City, and will help for everything.
What to buy: Don't miss them coffee blends!!!
Olive oil and typical produts.
What to pay: Less that you'll think.
This long street in Bari's new town is excellent for gift and souvenir-buying as well as just browsing while you wander. There are beautifully-maintained florists with flowers and plants (lots of cacti here, unsurprisingly), shops selling artisanal pasta and cheeses as well as stationers with handmade diaries and knick knack stores. If you need to buy a present for someone in Bari or at home this is the place to come.
If you're in Bari longer-term there are also some rather nice furniture shops. Or you can just peer through the windows and wish as I did!
There is no pressure to buy if you enter any of the shops and it's a pleasant walk where you can see the everyday life of the modern town.
These are the streets you need if you're looking for clothing, shoes and accessories in Bari be they bargain branded goods or staples. You'll find large shops for international brands like H&M, Adidas and Zara, Italian staples like Goldpoint and a host of smaller, boutiquey stores.
If you're in Bari before travelling on by ferry, there is a very handy shop on Corso Vittorio Emanuele which sells cheap bikinis (EUR 10!) and travel essentials like toiletries and sun cream as well as household goods and other bargains.
If clothing bargains are what you're after, we found truly excellent discounts at these shops: Zeis House for trainers and Culpado on the same street for super-trendy clothes and shoes on Via Sparano. There was also a good sale on Coccinelle handbags at their shop in the same street.
I think that it isn't an error to define the Borgo Murattiano as a big "open-air shop".In fact,here,there are a lot of shops,and everyone can find what he looks for.
The main street is surely Via Sparano,the long promenade where it's possible to find the main marks.
Corso Cavour is also ideal for shopping,but with cheap shops and stalls.
But in all the streets of this area (for example,Via Argiro) there are a lot of shops,so...have a nice day!
Shops opening time: 9-13 and 16.30-20.30.Monday morning and Sunday (few occasions excepted) closed.
What to buy:
In the last years,it is spreading,among the foreign tourists that visit Italy,the custom to take,as souvenirs,typical Italian foodstuffs.This is what a national survey about the oeno-gastronomical tourism says: the 45% of the foreign tourists choose an oeno-gastronomical Italian souvenir to bring home.And,in effect,it's difficult to say that it is wrong,since the Italian food is the best and genuinest of the world.So,who visit Bari and Apulia,can be really satisfied,from this point of view,in fact many local foodstuffs are among the most favourite ones.
The most loved Apulian souvenirs are the Altamura(BA)'s bread,the first European bakery-product with the DOP certification,characterized by its yellow colour,a crunchy crust and a long preservability; and the Apulian pasta:the homemade orecchiette are a "must",if you visit Bari Vecchia.
But there are many other Apulian foodstuffs that would deserve to be brought away,such as the "taralli"(typical savoury biscuits),the extra-virgin olive oil from the Terra di Bari or the Moscato di Trani,a rare sweet wine.
What to buy:
Only handmade apulian typical food products: pasta, preserves, jams, taralli and sweet; paté, extra virgin olive oil and wine
What to pay: With 10 euro you can buy pasta taralli and a preserve
