Mercato Centrale Firenze

Have you been to Florence? No? Same. That is why we are happy to share with you photos that our guest foodie recently shared with us. Below are a few image of her journey through the streets of Florence.

Don’t they look good? Anyway, there another photo that really caught our attention. This was taken at Mercato Centrale Firenze. If you love watching shows on Food Network and TLC, you have probably seen this scenario.

Mercato Centrale Firenze was the brainchild of Umberto Montano, who with Claudio Cardini launched the project that would give Florence back one of its most important locations: the first floor of the covered market in the San Lorenzo neighbourhood. The project became a reality in spring 2014, marking the 140th anniversary of the iron and glass building erected in 1874 according to a design by architect Giuseppe Mengoni – also responsible for the San Ambrogio market and the more famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan.


Open daily from 10 am until midnight, this large covered marketplace will give you a unique and authentic gastronomic experience. Here you will discover several traditional shops that sells bread, cheeses, chocolate and ice cream. You will also find some fresh seafood, fruits and veggies, meats and salamis as well as pasta, lampredotto, sandwiches and wines!

If you get the chance, don’t forget to visit Mercato Centrale Firenze!
