We went today and were kinda let down. Went to the bustling central market, and loved it. Lots of stalls closed and most places open were selling raw produce, more eating and drinking options at central market with a more accessible feel to it.

Lots of great things to eat here, and the proportion of locals is higher. Mercato Centrale is great to see, but San'Ambrigo is an escape from the craziness of Centrale. Also the vendor service is more friendly. There is a bit of seating, and you...More

Our Airbnb landlady recommended that we visit this market that is off the beaten tourist track, yet not too much of a detour from the tourist centre. It was definitely worth the visit; a covered meat and fish market and fruit and veg stalls outside...More

Great local market to hangout and eat like a local and buy local fresh food. If we had a self catering it would be the place to go. I've never seen such fresh produce!

There are two types of voyagers. The tourists and the the travelers. If you think you’re in the first category, then don’t go to mercato Di sant ambrogio. It’s not for you. If you consider yourself as a traveler and you’d like to find out...More

We came to the indoor market to eat lunch at Trattoria da Rocco, which was great! After our meal we walked through the indoor and outdoor markets, full of shops selling fresh meat, cheese, seafood, pasta, and produce. We bought some excellent fresh ravioli from...More

Don't waste any money, just take a look and go elsewhere. This was a good market many, many years, well, decades ago, local egg-producers, local farmers, vegetables, local meats, Tuscan Fish. Now, it is a reseller place of products less than mediocre in quality. That...More

We enjoy both Sant'Ambrogio and Mercato Centrale in Florence. Sant'Ambrogio is more laid back and easier to get around. Check the prices of fruit/veggies (they fluctuate day to day and booth to booth) - but you really can't go wrong on any of them.

We enjoyed this much more than the mercato centrale. It is much less touristy and there were lots of local traders selling delicious produce at a fair price. Highly recommended.

Nearby
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
