This is a great place to get fresh, in season fruits and veggies. The prices are wonderful at most tables. I do recommend browsing and asking about prices before buying. Even a little Italian can help you get a better price.

I was reading about stuff to do and expected so much from these small marketplaces. This one is really small, the offer is pretty much equal on all stands and it was kind of a waste of time, because in Firenze there's sooo much to...More

On the outside, very cheap souvenirs at WAY better prices- however some of the stuff appeared second hand. The “new clothing” items were rather expensive for the quality. The vegetables and fruits were nice. There was a lovely bakery/cafe inside with great food. It was...More

We love this market, and suggest going during the morning hours and during the weekday. You really can't go wrong with any of the selections. We like the sbriciolona and proscuitto di parma from the butcher with the Boar's head. Make your own sandwich with...More

Went with friends to buy provisions for our rental villa. Fantastic selection of meat, fruit ,veg and pasta. Spoilt for choice and such good value. Even if you don't want to buy anything worth a trip!

We went today and were kinda let down. Went to the bustling central market, and loved it. Lots of stalls closed and most places open were selling raw produce, more eating and drinking options at central market with a more accessible feel to it.

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.
