On the north side of Palazzo della Ragione you will find this fruit market. It seems that it closes around lunch time. Nice colors, fresh fruit and lots of (local) people.

We visited during the day, when the piazza was home to a busy market. It was fun to walk around among the throngs shopping for fruits and vegetables.

Strolling through this lovely old market is a joy for senses. Fresh local fruits, large assortment of sweets and candy...even cheese products. Surrounding centuries old architecture makes it a very lovely place.

Some of the week days you can find here markets on different occasions. The one that I saw was themed after bicycles. But the more important thing to there is to visit Palazzo della Ragione in my opinion.

An attractive square in central Padua surrounded with a variety of restaurants. The market was just closing up as we arrived but there was a constant flow of people through the square on foot and by cycle as we sat and enjoyed the ambiance.
