This weekly market in the Cascine Park on the banks of the Arno River is like shopping in a huge open-air department store.

Average Market for tourist city
Mar 2020
The last day in Florence, we scanned market after coming back from Petit Palace area ( which is about 15 minutes away walking). They have lots of souvenirs some of which are okay but also Leather goods which are seconds??? from Florence fashion industry or maybe old inventory. I had fun here with wife finding a purse she liked and me haggling with vendor. We ended up getting two purses for 80 Euros even though we started at 150 euros for one. Being that the virus shutdown tourist traffic, that may have been reason we got deal we did.

This is a worthwhile exploration.

You can find a wide array of clothing and household goods there at really reasonable prices. Clothing in abundance. Be aware you won't find high fashion designer clothes but you will find an interesting array of really inexpensive clothing - shirts, sweaters, jackets, socks, etc. I was disappointed, however, that the vendors begin packing up around noon, particularly if it is raining. Plan to be there early.

Only a short walk from the centre but could be a different country. Many, many stalls with interesting goods you won’t see in the middle of Florence. Great for household stuff & people watching.

Great deals!

One of the better places to shop for those household things which it’s not easy to bring in your suitcase. Florentini shop here. Wish i’d bought more dishcloths and lovely old linens.

WOW!

This is a fabulous market! The vendors sell everything - produce, fruits, meats and cheeses, fish, lunch foods, pickles, olives, dry goods - clothing, kitchenware, carpets, second-hand goods - anything you could want. The prices are fabulous and it is a fun walk down the river to the very large park.

Nice local market, in a lovely park along the river Arno. If you leave your car at the large Villa Costanza parking and take the T1 to go downtown, just hop off for a walk and coffee or snack at the market, easy going, good bargains, lots of locals. Be aware: Tuesday only

Cheap but lively

Tip: Tram from main station drops you minted away.
Massive market mainly full of cheap clothes, scarves etc but the locals enjoyed it.
Fruit and veg and bread at the start was good.
Nice park for a picnic.
New tram drops you off a couple of minutes away.

I shop this market every time I come to Florence
Apr 2017 • Solo
I used to shop for clothes here, but now all the new stuff comes from China.... Although designed for the Italian market, I just don't like buying Chinese goods. There are some good fabric vendors and I buy especially the sewing notions, ribbons, trims, buttons. There are also some real flea market tables with used clothing with some beautiful stuff on them. I got a beautiful red scarf from Turkey at this market. They also have some fun things to eat - great inexpensive household items (if you rent an apartment and have some extra needs) as well as linens. you can get pretty much anything you need for an extended stay in Florence at a much better price that at the stores. Highly recommend, except for the Chinese clothing.
