Do not shop at the first shop you find. Nor should you take the first price offered. We were able to get a nice large leather knapsack for much less than in stores. We also found lovely cashmere wraps and leather wallets. Take your time...More

You can get anything and everything at the San Lorenzo market! Outside you are surrounded by leather. Inside, the market keeps going on forever with fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, flowers, wine....anything you could need. Upstairs is a food court with many many restaurants. We...More

Visited outdoor San Lorenzo market and Mercato Centrale. We really enjoyed the outdoor market and didn't mind the innumerable leather stalls and the haggling. It was fun. The quality of the goods was very good and the prices were better than in North America.

The mercato is an ideal place for buying fresh food or finding souvenirs. However, I recommend comparing the prices of the different shops. E.g., 500g of coffee beans costed €9 in one shop and in another €17.

San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind
stalls with an array of products in one of the most
traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different
ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor
market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a
vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to
fall in love with this area and in particular, with
its variety of food, especially those focusing on
