Travel Guide : Markets in Tuscany

Italian Market 3

MARKET DAYS IN TUSCANY

The markets in Tuscany are one of the great sights to visit. Locals have their markets open daily, others weekends or during holidays. Find sights of fresh home grown produce, excellent cheeses, salamis, fish or pasta. There are also stalls for fine clothes, designer shoes and bags, pots, kitchenware, tools, hardware.

It is not customary to bargain for food items, they already are very cheap but you can haggle for other items like clothes if you buy many. It is polite to ask permission from the vendor if you want to touch produce like fruits or vegetables.

Most of the markets are in the morning, held 6am to 1pm. But some are also open in the afternoon or through out the day during holidays. Here is our complete guide  to the list of markets in Tuscany.
