We enjoy both Sant'Ambrogio and Mercato Centrale in Florence. Sant'Ambrogio is more laid back and easier to get around. Check the prices of fruit/veggies (they fluctuate day to day and booth to booth) - but you really can't go wrong on any of them.

We enjoyed this much more than the mercato centrale. It is much less touristy and there were lots of local traders selling delicious produce at a fair price. Highly recommended.

This is not a tourist show like the Central Market. This is a place to buy real food. Visited today and it was obvious that this is where the locals buy. If you are a cook or into food, this is the place to come....More

Anything you wish to purchase is right here. You won't go hungry. Meat and fish, fruit and vegetables, drinks, it's all here! A good way to pass some time.

There's a small little open restaurant inside that's nice and cheap with yummy food. Also all of the stalls have lovely helpful tenders so you can go home with food for dinner.

The market has some good fresh produce, especially fruit and veg, however the stall are all very similar so it is worth shopping around for the best price.

There are two main traditional markets in Florence, the Mercato Centrale, and the Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio. The former is the one most visited by tourists, the latter is most visited by residents of Florence. Inside Sant'Ambrogio are the butcher shops, fishmongers, purveyors of cheeses and...More

- A little off the beaten track, plenty of locals shopping and eating here - Not many English speaking vendors, bring your phrasebook - Butchers, fishmongers, delis, fruit and veg, couple of small restaurants and take away food outlets. - Plenty of excellent produce

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.
