How to map
A closed way tagged with highway=pedestrian and area=yes is the common way to map squares and plazas. Draw the way at the outer limits of the area, possibly even connecting with surrounding walls, buildings, etc. If there are roads passing through the area, map them as usual and make connecting nodes at all intersections with the pedestrian area. Often other paths such as highway=footway will connect with the edge of the pedestrian area. However, note that few routers will route through the area, most will route around the edge of it.
Vehicles may be allowed during special hours to unload merchandise, but are often prevented from entering by bollards.
