Markets in Tuscany

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. Open air 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.
