It's not all that rare. Most major US cities have markets / squares of this nature.

Kontraktova Ploshchia in Kyiv, Ukraine. The parking lot ruins it, unfortunately, but it'll be made into a proper market square eventually. The name literally means "contract square" because this is where traders used to sign contracts and conduct their business with each other.

(the roof of the market building is actually a rendering of the planned reconstruction, but it's a good aerial picture)
