Butchery - This is a very good butchery and it is well worth getting your meat here.

Some shops close on Wednesday afternoon.
All shops are closed all day Sunday.

As in all Tuscan towns there are small grocery stores, that are a little more expensive but give you a good idea of the Italian village life. Sometimes they will have better products than the big supermarkets. Shopping in these also gives you an opportunity to practice your Italian.

Chemist -  There is a chemist in Greve.

Market - Saturday. Look out for the pork spit roast.
