The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.

This market is not in the city centre and it's a bit further, but still walking distance. We came by just after 9:30 on a Friday. There are fewer crowds here, probably because of its location, which makes it a prime spot for food tours. We didn't do one but we just wandered around ourselves. There are fewer options here than Mercato Centrale but the trade off is that you don't have to deal with all the people. They sell a lot of the same stuff - fresh produce, meats, and some vendors selling food. We tried the tripe sandwich here, which wasn't as good as the other market, but still delicious. We also bought some strawberries outside, which might have been some of the best strawberries I've ever eaten in my life, so definitely don't sleep on those.

Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio is worth the trek!

Popular with tourists and locals. Had some of the best cappuccino at the best price €1.20 each!
Very busy but a must see to take in the atmosphere both indoors and the outdoor market.

We came here for lunch and loved it. It is a bit of a hike from the center but we took an electric scooters with the kids and it was about 20 minutes, they loved the ride.
We sat down at the Da Rocco trattoria and had a lovely meal! So authentic and local. Everything is reasonably priced and you do not see tourist crowds here, which is a plus for us.

It's a bit out of the way, but near Santa Croce. Way less touristy then Centrale, and many locals seem to shop here. Nothing mind blowing, but worth checking out if you're into markets, or want to pick up a few things for a picnic.

This is a much less touristy market, with far more vegetable and flea market elements. I enjoyed it and it had very tasty lunch options.

Wife and I on last day walked through here looking for some leather goods. It also has farmers market. There were many "northern Africans" selling leather goods which were marked made in Florence Italy as well as other collectible items. My wife started looking and I was just along for ride. We did find a purse which my wife was interested in and we were talking with the gentleman abou the cost. He started with 150 Euro's for a purse. Wife didn't know if she liked it or not and I found another for her to look at. He said it was 130 Euro's. We started walking away and he asked what we would pay. Going back and forth I got both purses for 80 euros. I was in Purchasing so this was fun dickering. This is about 10 minutes from Train station and 5 minutes from our hotel.
