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.

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.

perfect place for shopping not just groceries, but all kinds of products. There are two parts of this market place outside and inside part. In the inside part, there are also made foods, which are tasty and from domestic cuisine. definitely must try place, when in Florence where you can get closer to domestic culture and cuisine.

You have the large food market near the train station and then this one in the area of the Santa Croce. This smaller one is more the place where the locals do their shopping. Not much tourists are spotted here. We came here with our ''withlocals'' guide and tried some local food.
If you like local street food you have to come here.

Get off the ‘historico’ treadmill and out and about to some daily city life. This is largely a neighbourhood and daily produce market 7am to 2pm, with some special markets on days throughout the month - check the website for details. If you are lucky enough to be able to cook at you base whilst in Florence, this is a great place to buy your ingredients, vegetables, meat and fish. After your shopping, it’s worth trying local cafes and restaurants which range from espresso bars and small lunch venues in the covered market, to mid range trattorias in the square, with a traditional Tuscan menu and the various Cibreo offers, created by home grown chef Fabio Picchi. We ate lunch at Cibreo restaurant with an excellent three course meal for two with wine for €58. The market, long lunch and wander through the smaller local streets is a lovely way to spend a day.

A pleasant market but a bit out of the centre. Food stores catch the eye but so do most in France and Italy.
