“I love to shop.” This is an often used phrase to describe our seeming obsession with all things retail. Many think the current form of retail therapy is new but it actually isn’t. There is a long and storied history of markets and the merchant class all across the world.
The research from the World Cities Forum on global cities with the most markets shows how important shopping has always been to various cultures. It’s no surprise that Istanbul, the city of the Grand Bazaar tops the list. However there are many great cities that make the list which may surprise you. For instance everyone knows Parisians love to shop, but did you expect Los Angeles to be in the top five cities with markets?
