When shopping is: “Marca” | Marca Fermana - Shopping
Small and medium sized companies form the make up of the Fermano area's economy. Wide spread is the Artisan-like Production, as is also the up keeping of the traditional methods even in the Industrial Processes. The shoes and hats of the Marca Fermana territory are known throughout the world; precious are also the activities of the finest cabinet makers and the furniture restoration, and everything is accessible through the small shops scattered throughout the territory and at the outlets of the more famous brands. The flexibility of opening times makes shopping in the Fermano area easy and convenient.
...well this area IS called Marca, (which coincidently means: “brand”),
so no surprise there then, that right HERE is where the Top Italian Shoe Brands are actually manufactured!
The Marca Fermana is a land where traditions still retain their own artisan identity, all the activities are reminiscent of the industrious diligence of the Fermano people. It is impossible to come to the Province of Fermo and not be drawn into the fascination of shopping and buying authentic and artisan made products knowing there are so many good deals to be found!
For “shoe-lovers” the Fermano footwear district is a shopping paradise because it is actually here that we find the most qualified manufacturers of shoes from the Marche and, of course, the best stocked and most stylish and convenient footwear outlets such as Nero Giardini, Tods, Hogan - men's-shoes, Loriblu -women's shoes, Melania - children's shoes and many others.
The most important Municipalities in the area are represented without doubt by Fermo, Montegranaro, Porto Sant’Elpidio, Monte Urano and Sant’Elpidio a Mare. But the Province of Fermo doesn't just live from Shoes!
Montappone is the most important European centre for the manufacturing of straw and wool hats, gloves and scarves, which represent the main manufactured articles of the Hat District, which Massa Fermana e Monte Vidon Corrado are also part of. It must also be pointed out that in the territory of the Province of Fermo the activity of the finest cabinet making and antique furniture restoration (especially in the area of Amandola) can be found and the artisan manufacturing of ceramic in Montottone too.
