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.

My husband and I always enjoy going to the San Lorenzo market. The atmosphere is fun and you can find some really delicious food to either eat there or take out. On our last visit, though, I ran across a shady, NON- Italian character, though, who was selling shopping bags that were probably made in China and defective. He is... More

Really good place to come and buy some locally produced items from Florence for a cheap price. Great range of leather goods and silk garments. Stall owners are very funny, but know that if travelling in a group of girls they will catcall!! Bargaining is also allowed.

I've been to Florence several times and as an avid bag/ purse collector, I was anticipating going to this market and buy something. I did what other people suggested, walk the market and see what catches your eye, then return to the stall afterwards. The designs of the bags were boring and if you closely, some were great but some... More

Super pushy non Italians. Quality of goods were very poor. They were rude and would trail you if you asked a price and it was very unfriendly. There were a couple of nicely made products, and u fortunately not enough items that were of that quality. Very sad. One Italian man who was very kind, but was very sad by... More

This was smaller, but in my opinion a nicer market than Mercato Centrale. Choice of foods was similar, but less crowded.

If you're like me, you hate car shopping. If you're like me, you also find a need to research everything lol. My wife and I went the San Lorenzo Market initially because we heard and read about it being the place to do some good shopping, find some souvenirs and more or less, browse. We also read about it in... More
