Atina in Frosinone Italy

Market Day in Atina

Each Monday is market day in Atina. This weekly event has been held since time immemorial. The town is transformed into a colourful bustling market place. The large sprawling market stretches throughout the centre of the town. Local growers and farmers arrive early bringing their freshly grown produce to sell.  Each stall holder has their regular pitch. The fruit and vegetable section of the market is mainly held in Piazza Marconi, Piazza Veroli and Piazza Saturno. Depending on the time of year the stalls are laden with all types of colourful vegetables, fruits, legumes, herbs and mushrooms.
