Market Day

I understand that Friday is Market day in Siena, right? I am going to be there soon on a Friday. Will I be able to locate it coming from the bus station? Or where is it?

Not according to this list:

www.italiaambulante.com/mercatiSiena2.asp

Market days are Monday, Wednesday (the biggest, I believe) and Saturday, with an antiques market on the third Sunday of the month.

the big market is on Wednesday, the antiques market is every 3rd Sunday

there is a local produce market in the old market place on fridays ilcittadinoonline.it/news/134035/Venerd%C3%A…

.

the others on the list i dont think are in Siena.

It's on Wednesday not Friday, and the stalls take up the parking lot around the Fortress, right opposite the bus station.

Hi there, according to my guidebook it's on all morning, starts 07:30hrs and finishes about 13:00hrs.

Siena isn't far from Florence, you might still be able to make it.
