Fresh Foods Galore

Since 1874, the Mercato Centrale has become one of Italy’s biggest indoor markets and has established itself as one of the most beloved landmarks in all of Florence.

Many people flock straight to the San Lorenzo market outside, but step inside the two floor Mercato Centrale, and you will find within a brimming market of produce, spices, pastas, olives, and food products galore.

The food is super fresh, and the clientele ranges from local regulars to tourists just wanting to sample some quality goods. For a full meal head upstairs and find yourself in foodie paradise. Try out one (or more than one) of the restaurants which range from seafood, pasta, pizza, gelato, paninos and more.
