If you made it to the market and are getting a bit hungry after seeing all the great food, you should absolutely visit Bar Roma next to the market and get something to eat, a beer, white wine or merely a great cup espresso.
Try their lunch, it is superb, nice service and a lot of value for the money.
The Wednesday market in Santo Stefano Belbo is well worth a visit. You can find everything from tools to all kinds of delicious cheese, herbs and meat. It usually opens around 8 am and closes around 12 am so make sure not to miss it. Walk around and just enjoy the atmosphere, buy some fresh apricots or the meaty sun warm beef tomatoes.
