Markets in Tuscany

  • Weekly Open-Air Markets

    The cheapest and most authentic way to go shopping during your villa holiday is to visit one of the weekly markets that take place in Tuscany’s towns and villages. Some have just a few stalls, others are huge and extremely.

    It’s a lovely way to shop for local goods – cheese, wine and oil, salamis and hams, fish and meat, fresh fruits and vegetables. You’ll also find stalls selling clothes and shoes, and it’s not unusual to find branded products and quality items at a reduced price.

    These markets usually only open in the morning, from 7.30am to 1pm, but even if they last all day, go early if you want to bag a bargain or buy the freshest produce.

    Here’s a list of the most popular markets in Tuscany and Umbria, many of which will be located near your To Tuscany villa. As well as the street or square where they take place, we’ve noted on which day of the week they take place, but days may vary depending on festivals and bank holidays.
