Dive into the Tuscan cuisine and taste forgotten flavors of the most authentic and vibrant districts in the town!
We plunge into the culinary heart of Florence , the part of the old town that still breathes authenticity. Filled with the most exquisite flavors of herbs and fresh ingredients, the market’s history dates back to the year 1873. From grocery stores, meat, fish and “pizzicagnoli” (you’ll find out why translating this word would be a shame) to bakeries, bars, trattorias , and a multitude of vegetable, fruit and cheese stands: If a culinary haven exists you’ll find it right here in Florence!
As we stroll along the incredible display of food, we will taste a selection of cheese, cold cuts, focaccia and many Tuscan typical specialities, accompanied by a glass of Chianti wine.
Here it’s where many of the most renewed Florentine chefs come to find the ingredients for their traditional recipes; after all, this historic market remains less touristy.
Find out about the seasonal specialties and taste the difference between various types of tomatoes, become versed in the different ways to cut meat and uncover the secrets of the Florentine T-bone steak that makes us famous around the world.
Remaining in the market area, we might meet a famous chef and Doc Florentine — a lover of Florence, master of food, and the accomplished owner of several dining and entertainment venues around Florence. From a bar and a typical trattoria to a restaurant featuring blends of Tuscan and oriental flavors and the latest Florentine gem that let’s you experience the best our national and regional gourmet cuisine has got to offer: Knowledgeable about all things food and Florence, this open and outgoing personality will enchant you with his stories!
