Lunch at Central Food Market, Florence

Bruschetta at Central Food Market

If there is any food market worth visiting, this is the one! Made up of two levels, Florence’s Mercato Centrale (or Mercato di San Lorenzo) hosts an array of fresh produce stalls on the ground level while the upper level is pretty much the best fresh food court you may ever come across. The menu items here are as fresh and gourmet as you would imagine from a food market and come with a surprisingly cheap price tag.

You can find anything from cheese platters, wine, pizza and pasta, burgers, and sweet items like gelato and pastries. I went with a trio of bruschetta for lunch and we managed to also fit in dessert – mine was a ‘world cup champion’ made up of layers of chocolatey mousse and Julian had a type of frozen Cannoli.
