This is a little market that sells touristy stuff, bags, scarfs, tea towels, mugs, keyrings, etc. The Loggia is pretty and looks lovely at night time when the market has gone. Occasionally when we walked by at night there would be a musician playing, which was lovely.
There is also the famous bronze boar, il porcellino, that apparently means that you'll get good luck if you can get a coin to fall from his mouth into the grille below his head!

There were lots of options for beautiful leather bags and silk scarves. I stumbled on this by accident and enjoyed the characters within the market. The merchandise was better than what I saw at Mercato Centrale. If you are looking for a place to do some shopping this is a quick, fun stop.

Loggia del Mercato Nuovo used to be a place to sell luxury things (like silk and gold), but today is a place to buy leather, t-shirts and souvenirs (most of them made in China). The place's authentic beauty is visible after the stalls are closed, as you can admire the columns and the Fontana del Porcellino in peace, without staying in the line to take a photo. If you want to try a good lampredotto (the famous Florentine sandwich made from cow's stomach), there is a fast food joint next to it.
