The central market in Florence was born from an idea of Umberto Montano who, with Claudio Cardini, carried out the project that gave the city one of its most significant places: the first floor of the covered market of San Lorenzo. The project becomes reality in the spring of 2014, celebrating the 140 years of the architecture in iron and glass designed in 1874 by the architect Mengoni – also author of the market of S. Ambrogio and the more famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan.
A unique place
The Central Market Florence not only reconnects the city to a space remained deserted for many years but gives life to a vision that is more current and necessary than ever: repopulate an important and vital part of the center of Florence with traditional workshops that give centrality back to the artisans of taste. Bread and pastries, fresh fish, fried food and meatballs, fruit and vegetables, meat and salami, buffalo mozzarella, cheeses, chocolate and ice cream, fresh pasta, wine bars, lampredotto, sandwiches: all the shops are run by artisan dealers who in common have the passion for their profession.
A place that entertains
As well as for the regular shopping, at the central market Florence you can sit in one of the 500 places available to eat something, with the certainty of being able to count on authenticity: all operators subscribe to a quality policy and all dishes prepared within the market are cooked using only the raw materials that are for sale within the market itself. All this to make the Central Market of Florence the ideal place for every moment of the day, from 8 a.m. until midnight. Florence, since always a scenario of excellence and gastronomic authenticity, sees the artisans and their workshops as protagonists of the good food.
