Despite the fact that this piazza is located right behind Piazza del Campo it's pleasantly quiet. Part parking lot, part market square it still holds a nice atmosphere. A flea market is held here every wednesday and the sight from the square towards the hills beneath is very fine. In the middle of everything is a large oval roof where the square traders have their stands. It´s humourously called the Tartarugone (The turtle). There are also some restaurants around this square.

This is a parking lot. There are some very large restaurants on the square, but we chose to eat elsewhere as we didn’t like overlooking the parking lot as we ate.

The Piazza del Mercato is at the center of the weekly Wednesday market in Siena which is a combination flea market and food market for locals. The market is spralling covering much more ground than the Piazza itself. The Mercato is nothing particularly special without the market and even on market day, it's just the venue for a market that is interesting but not anything very unique. If you're in Siena on a market day, browse the vendors for a while. For me the most interesting vendors were the food, especially the fresh meat and cheese vendors. Some vendors operate as food trucks offering prepared foods.

We stopped here briefly to visit the antique market which takes place on the third Sunday of the month from about 9 AM to 6 PM. They sell antiques and collectibles. It's very local which is nice. There is also a weekly flea market on Wednesdays in Siena starting around at 8 AM. It's pretty big and located at the area between the Lizza gardens and the Medici Fortress (right next to the NH Siena Hotel). It's about a 10 minute walk from Piazza del Campo.
