Florence Central Market - San Lorenzo Mercato Centrale ...is one of my favorite food markets to visit while in Italy. It is a virtual bounty of foods, and the foods housed here are pristine! Farm to table cheeses, salamis, oils, balsamic's, grappa's, fruits, veggies, flowers, meats, seafood, practically every animal part available is for sale here. There are places to eat lunch, samples of cheeses, meats, sweets to taste... and a wonderful environment to people watch. The food in the Tuscan region is such a large part of the culture, as in all parts of Italy, but it's the pride of product that I appreciate. Every display is beautiful...artful. For me, it's wonderful to see the bounty of food which is offered here. There are so many products that are not available in the states...it almost makes us cry that we have no kitchen in Florence. Perhaps next visit, we will rent an apartment, so we can really experiment with some of the incredible ingredients available. Food is held to a very strong standard in this market...and for good reason!
