We have found here a very well organized and clean market. Shoppers were usually welldressed though some of them arrived with bicycle. The entire square had a really elegant atmosphere. We were crossing it 2 times during the day and once in the evening.

This is a market on the south side of Palazzo della Ragione. A market in the morning, outdoor restaurants in the evening. A charming Piazza.

We visited midday, while the piazza was home to a lively fruit and vegetable market. The colors were a feast for the eyes.

A wonderful fresh garden foodstuff market where you can choose from the best fruits and vegetables of the day. Packed away and gone by noon so tables and chairs for lunch are placed around by the surrounding eateries.

Wish we had a daily market like this back home. We have enjoyed popping around the corner for very fresh fruit and vegetables! There are also shops under the imposing main building that provide fantastic meat, cheese, fish and so on. It is hard to...More

This relatively small square, watched over by the Piazza della Ragione is the place for the Padua fruit and vegetable market. Architecture round the square is worth observing.

The building housing the packet is a destination in itself. The wide variety of food shops all filled with local products specific to the region catering to locals makes a walk through it a delightful experience.
