Several years back when we were here again the quality of goods was better and good value. The area is full of market stalls and little shops that are open from around 09:00 and close around 19:00. Hats, scarves, bags, shoes and t-shirts, gloves, jewelry and different kinds of leather goods are what you can expect to find here. Compared... More

The market is always a wonderful place to go and see all the fresh foods but with the opening of the second floor food court, it is a wonderful place to go and taste lots of wonderful foods.

Yes, there are literally thousands of leather bags and belts in all colors and shapes in the streets around the market and if you are careful you can haggle a good price on some unbranded products but the best is in the second floor of the market building. You will find one of the best selections in food and drinks,... More

Unlike so many other places we've been too, buying gifts in Florence was easy thanks to the bustling San Lorenzo market. The choice of leather goods (especially handbags, wallets and purses) and scarves amongst other fabric items meant shopping for male or female relatives could all be achieved with one stroll through the market. There was still room for the... More

We love visiting markets and San Lorenzo didn't let us down. You can see the variety of local produce items, the second floor is a great place to find and taste the delicious food, although the prices were not as inexpensive as expected but a good place to stop and taste a variety of dishes. We were there around noon... More

Great market but I prefer the store fronts. Had a great experience working with Marco's 35 year old family business (with his mom and others) at Sabini. Great guy and very helpful. He's professional , respectful and gave us a deal we could both agree on.
