Florence, April 2014

“At the Mercato Centrale, in the San Lorenzo area, you'll find a diverse selection of shops offering visitors quality food from all over Italy, most of which are managed by the 3rd or 4th generation owners. Here, hospitality is a defining characteristic and shoppers can taste exhibited products. From April 23, the first floor of Florence's Central Market is open again. The market's renewed space of 3000 mq now offers 500 seatings and hosts 12 workshops, a restaurant, a pizzeria, a brewery, the Chianti Classico shop, a bookshop and a cooking school. Among the first floor new workshops you'll find cheese, bread, gelato, chocolate, pasta and cold cuts shops exhibiting the best food products from Italy.”
