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.

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.
