Padua’s food market is a true testament of time. It’s been going for over 800 years!
The colourful and vivid stalls are always bursting of the best fresh produce and ingredients and of the popular street food. Here, you’ll find carefully arranged crates, brought from the fields of the surrounding area by dedicated producers. Local people weave through the stalls, chatting and laughing as they fill their shopping bags with wonderful ingredients.
You’ll enter into the heart of this foodie paradise with your Cesarina, and you’ll shop together for the finest food; stalls stacked with cheeses, crates of vibrant radicchio leaves and countless jars of sauces and preserves... You’ll be spoilt for choice! If you fancy a bite to eat,try the local “cicchetti”, the Veneto’s version of the Spanish tapas. Are you ready for a culinary adventure?
Italy has a vast and varied culinary heritage, and our local hosts are proud to share its hidden secrets.
