Mercato Centrale

A must go in Firenze, this market was recently revitalized as part of a project that revived the neighborhood as well. Full of life, noise and banter, it is vibrant and truly Italian with confectionaries, fresh fish, fruits and vegetables, salamis, cheeses, pasta, wine and many other delicious choices, sure to please layman and gourmand tastes alike. They also have a cooking school, with short workshops and extended classes that include shopping trips to the market and cooking freshly purchased ingredients. The Mercato is not far from Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, so you could visit both in one go.
