This beautiful square is part of the commercial trade in Padua along with Piazza delle Erbe and Sotto il Salone (under the Palazzo della Ragione). Together they become one of the largest markets in Italy. The square is located north of the Palazzo della Ragione and is perhaps the least noticed of the three squares that are all adjacent to each other (Piazza delle Erbe, Piazza dei Signori and Piazza della Frutta). There are still very nice things to experience in this square except "il Salone", such as the Torre degli Anziani and the Colonna del Peronio. On the day of our visit there was a nice market with mainly textiles.

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.

Right beside one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in the world the Piazza Dei Frutti Is a wonderful place full of light and changing scenes.
In the day it has a market going on , in the evening the whole piazza transforms into a table bedecked place where people take aperitivo and dine outdoors from a variety of cafes and restaurants. Its bustling , alive and I hope it never changes.

Not to be missed in the centre of Padova - excellent market and shops all around. High quality private shops and an excellent information centre nearby

The square is famous for its Palazzo della Ragione. This is an old name for the square, but still today there are several fuits stalls.

It is a beautiful square in the center of Padova. It is bigger than the Piazza delle Erbe. It is still used as a market square. I don't know the exact schedule. Around there is the Palazzo della Ragione with market like shops in the basement. There you can buy food of high quality. Also some restaurants, cafes and bars are around.
