Farmers Markets in Florence

green garlic, asparagus, strawberries, and more!

Florence is blessed with a selection of wonderful farmers markets where seasonal fruits and vegetables abound as well as quality traditional products, from meats, fish, and cheese counters to wines, coffee and liquors.

The most notable Florentine markets are the Mercato Centrale di Firenze in the San Lorenzo neighborhood and the Sant’Ambrogio Market near the piazza of the same name. Each has indoor eateries, too. You’ll also find gourmet products that make for nice souvenirs. Another market to know is the Fierucola, a once-monthly organic market in Piazza Santo Spirito run by producers who adhere to eco-sustainable values.

A great way to get to know the local market scene and discover how Italians like to shop for their farm fresh food items is by joining ArtViva’s Italian Passions – Food & Wine tour. Or check out any of our other wonderful Italian cooking experiences!
