When does the Market at Prato della Valle in Padua take place? Market days are something truly unique in Italy. While you might have already heard about local farmers markets taking place in so many smaller and bigger cities, those usually consist of real farmers selling their own fresh and homegrown produce. A great way to but (usually ecological) produce. However, in Italy, the markets are literally a home goods store without a roof. Markets in Italy sell everything from Shoes to clothes, underwear, kids toys, make-up and beauty products, kitchen utensils and so much more. Of course, you are usually also able to buy Incidentally, the weekly markets around Lake Maggiore are very famous in northern Italy.

Located on parts of the largest square in Italy, the weekly market at Prato della Valle takes place each Saturday. Starting at 8 am the “non-food products market & plants and flowers market” is open until 7 pm in the winter season, and until 8 pm in the summer months. However, there is also a fruit and vegetable market. This one takes place from Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 1:30 pm in the northern area of Prato della Valle (opposite of Palazzo Angeli) and each Saturday from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm in the south-east area of the huge Prato della Valle. So, except for Sundays, it is always a market day in Padova.
