I love this market and visit every time I am in Firenze. Great selection of purses, belts, wallets, ties, scarfs and other items. I enjoy bartering with the vendors for a better price, and I think they like it too!

Until 3 in the afternoon, the ground level of this market (like many European urban markets) teems with sellers of all sorts of footstuffs; and the surrounding area is full of street merchants offering leather goods, souvenirs. But for us the reason to so, 8...More

A wonderful array of leather goods but be careful to scrutinize the products for fakes. Make sure that the leather is one piece. There are far fewer Italian stall holders and way too many Pakistani and Indian traders who hussle you unbecomingly.
