Tired of walking around and feeling hungry? Take a seat in one of the restaurants connected to the market for an inexpensive and tasty lunch. The market is open Monday to Saturday 7am - 2pm.
Mercato Centrale Completely renewed and in the heart of Florence daily life, Mercato Centrale is the perfect place to buy high quality goods and delicatessen, to stop for lunch while visiting museums, to relax with a generous glass of red wine after a long day out in the crowded city. The market is open Monday to Friday, 7 am - 2pm, Saturday open 7am - 5pm (not during summer months). On the first floor you can find restaurants and bars, open every day from 10am until midnight. http://www.mercatocentrale.it/en/mercato-centrale-firenze/
La Fierucola - Piazza S. Spirito - Settled in one of Florence's less spoiled neighborhoods, Piazza S.Spirito is the perfect Oltrarno square where to chill out during the day and its the spot where you can find the Fierucola, a market that sells biological products and promotes the use of organic and byodinamic farming on a small scale: wine, food, dairies but also handmade products. Held on the 3rd Sunday of every month (except August)

Lucca:
Antiques market in Lucca. Probably the main town in Tuscany for old furniture and antiquites, Lucca's market takes places in the street and square around the Cathedral of S.Martino every 3rd weekend of each month.
Mostra Piazzetta dell'Arte. Lucca hosts  a special open air exhibition every 3rd weekend of each month. In the streets around Piazzetta San Carlo and Piazzetta dell'Arancio, local artists show off and promote their paintings and sculptures.

Siena:
Antiques and flea market in Piazza del Mercato is on 3rd Sunday each month (not in August). Located under the big roof so-called Il Tartarugone, it is a small market but the location itself is worth a visit!




Weekly open air Markets

Sometimes the cheapest way to purchase fruits & vegetables, dairy products, clothes, pans and flowers is on the weekly markets that you can find in any Tuscan town and village. Sometimes they are composed by no more than ten stands, other times they are very big and extremely busy as well. You’ll be surrounded by pecorino cheese and salami flavours, roasted pork and honey, while you walk among the stands and mix with the locals. At any weekly market you will also find clothes and shoes stands as well, and it’s not unusual to find branded products and quality stuff at reduced price.
Markets are usually open in the morning only from  7.30am till 1.00pm, but even if they last all day long we suggest you to go there early in the morning if you want to be sure to get a deal or find the freshest products!
Below you can find the most popular markets in Tuscany and Umbria located near your To Tuscany villa, the street or square where they take place and which day of the week. Days may vary depending on festivals and bank holidays.
