I like the Mercato Central. I live here, in Florence, and I go often to the market. Certainly there are the vendirs that are more comercial and cater to tourists, but the greater part of the market remains authentic. It is here that I can find the best produce - great seasonela fruit and vegables - and the best fish and meat. Also great local muchrooms and Parmesian cheese, or Prosciuto. A good Tuscan lunch (at Nerbonbe in particular) is possible too. I have lived here a long time, but I am not from Florence, and I still find the Mercato Central the most enjoyable place to find something to eat.
