All excellent quality and reasonably priced. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday there is a fornello pronto here where you can choose your meat and they bbq it for you and you eat it in an outside dining area with wine, water, beer or bread or take it away.
Ceglie and Ostuni street market on Saturday morning are good for food, clothes and odd bits and pieces.

The Saturday morning markets in Ostuni and Ceglie have reasonably priced fashionable clothes as does Grottaglie market on Thursday morning. There is a good selection of shops in the Shopping Malls (see below). The main street in Ostuni has a good selection of designer shops. Grottaglie market on Thursday morning is good for clothes. At the far end of the market there are tables of clothes, a bit like a jumble sale, and you can pick up some designer bargins here for just a few Euros. Wear a swimsuit and a brave face if you want to try things on as there are no changing rooms.
More than you can shake a stick at in the trulli town of Alberobello and Centro Storico in Ostuni

There is an Auchan near Mesagne (30 mins drive) on the Brindisi to Taranto motorway and another mall just outside Brindisi (40 mins drive) on the same road. There is a good selection of shops at both.

All the local town have an abundance of these during the summer months and some nights you can stand on the roof terrace and watch a succession of distant firework displays from all directions. The events are not very well publicised and often only at short notice
PLACES TO GO ( a small selection)
North Coast
Beaches: Torre Guaceto ( a nature reserve, no cafes or kiosks so you will need to take everything with you, Pantanagianni, Egnazia (just the Savelletri side of Egnazia). The beach with the young buzz, loud bars, pizzeria and fish restaurant is Lido di Bosca Verde near Pilone.
Octopus BBQ (and other seafood’s)-La Rotunda: Between Torre Canne and Savelletri
Towns: Villanova: a little fishing port. Polignano Al Mare (perched on cliffs). Trani and Monopoli have interesting small harbours, Otranto has an unusual church with skulls and a tree of life in the floor.
The big towns of Bari and Brindisi have extensive port areas and old centres. They are both ferry ports.
South Coast
Beaches: take your pick anywhere between San Pietro di Bevagna and Campomarina (between Porto Caesareo and Taranto)
Taranto has an large port are and old centre and extensive mussel beds.
Ostuni, and Ceglie with their medieval Centro Storicos are confusion of winding streets and alleys. Ostuni also has impressive views away to the sea and is the more cosmopolitan of the 2 towns. But Ceglie has a more ‘real’ Italian feel.
Carovigno has an old centre with a small castle that has a very picturesque courtyard. There are tours round the castle (last one at 6pm).
Lecce, named Florence of the south by the Lecce tourist board which may be stretching it a bit but does have lots of interesting and unusual buildings: can be reached by train from Ceglie which makes for a nice day out. In the other direction the train goes to Martina Franca.
Oria, good castle, museum, gardens and surrounding old town, Vecchia Oria is a good seafood restaurant
Matera (Sassi), a semi deserted town of cave dwellings. The location for Mel Gibson’s film The Passion Of Christ
Alberobello, a completely unique town made almost entirely of trulli. A must even though it is very touristy.
Grotte di Castellano, spectacular limestone caves, Italy’s longest cave system.
