Just outside the excellent Mercato Centrale is the street called Via dell'Ariento, which eventually merges or runs into the San Lorenzo market near San Lorenzo church. We walked this street after visiting Mercato Centrale so it was easy to not be that impressed by this street market. Most stalls seemed to sell consumable goods, some clothing items, a bit of...
