We enjoyed two visits to the leather section of the market. The prices were obviously inflated to encourage bargaining and once we settled on a price everyone was happy. Most vendors are friendly and helpful. Choices abound. Cut the asking price in half and work from there. Better prices for multiple purchases.
It’s easy to find and there are also many eating places surrounding the market if you wish to eat outdoors.

One cannot come to Florence without a visit to the San Lorenzo Market. It is an outdoor market that is smaller than it was on my first visit to Florence many years ago. The markets run along several streets surrounding the Central Market. (Make sure you take the time to visit the Central Market.) There are hundreds of stalls on each side of the street selling everything imaginable – clothing, leather goods, ceramics, paper products, souvenirs, and so much more. It is so much fun to walk thru and see all that is going on. If you want to buy something, this is time to try your hand at bargaining. The vendors love to bargain. So, have some fun; but, don’t pay the first price that is offered – try to bargain for something better.

Came in here for a quick pizza and it was delicious. Plenty of options for every type of pallet. It’s quick and easy to get in and out of here. Great prices also

A great food market inside and leather goods, clothing on the outside. This place is big and worth checking out.

Tip: go in afternoon when a little shadier.
Bought nice scarves, pashminas here for a good price from a store manned by a local but leather goods were a little old fashioned and daggy for the most. And all the same!
You must bargain as well and the sellers do hassle. Was told such ridiculous prices for some things we just left and bought in a shop.
