Located a short walk from most of the city's attractions this traditional food market is one for all to visit. The ground floor has a large number of traders offering a range of Italian fresh foods & drink. This is as good as many we have found in other European cities. However, this place really offers something special when you... More

It was fun to walk around and see the fresh produce, meat and cheese downstairs We are at one of the stalls upstairs that specializes in truffles. It is pricey but delicious. We picked up some wine from the nearby bar. Another lovely impromptu meal.

We had a great experience at mercato in firenze. It was our last night in Italy and we could try several dishes and food we hadn't tried during our vacation. It is modern, clean, food is yummy... I'd definitely go back!

This market is traditional downstairs with a wide selection on offer, fresh fruit and vegetables in season and local dishes with some rough and ready cafes/bistros serving typical local dishes, Upstairs you will find some very good restaurants and cafes and a decent wine bar. All in all well worth a visit

A vast indoor market of all the great food that Italy has to offer. This is like an enormous food court and market, with pastries, pizzas, pastas, meats and cheeses, wines, espresso bar, gelatos, truffle specialties and products, and I am sure, much more. The seating is all open, so that you can select from several areas to sample, or... More

Great place to visit even if you're not going to eat here. There's a small market inside in addition to all the food stalls. You can have an entire meal here, a little snack, or just a drink. We ate at one of the food stalls that serves Florentine steak and loved it! The steak was cooked perfectly and tasted... More

This food court was clean and had great gourmet options at a very affordable price. We could have gone there every night due to the wide variety.

Came here last night ordered seafood grill, grill calamari, grill fish, local 10 EU burger special, fried chicken and zucchini. Seafood and calamari grill are great, deep fried mixer are just ok. 10EU burger are below average, the center of burger are still cold, I think they are too busy, so burger quality is going down. Fried chicken nuggets are... More
