“Typical Open Market”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Walking distance from The Church of Santa Croce. Fresh produced like fruits, veggies and meats are available at retail basis. However, clothing stalls and crafts are also available. We tried Florentine Lampredotto (veal abomasum) sandwich in one of the stalls and it taste great.

“Great Place to get away from the tourist crowds”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

authentic market, buy your fruits, veggies, bread, and other foods where the locals shop and eat. There is a great small restaurant in the market, only open for lunch, small selection, but great food at fantastic prices. Where the locals eat, but be aware that you may share your table. But isn't meeting the locals what travel is all about?

“Genuine Italian market”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This market is off the beaten path of tourists so what you have are everyday Italians doing their daily market shopping. The market is incredible. I would love to have it in my neighborhood - fresh meat, produce, cheese, fish and pasta. The locals have no idea how lucky they are.

“Class Field Trip to Sant'Ambrogio Market”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Sant'Ambrogio was definently an experince! It has more local customers than the Central Market. The prices for the pre-made food are a bit higher, bit the food itself is of higher quality and better presentation. The produce is a bit cheaper and much better quality than that that at the Central Market. We compared the two for class and collectively decided that Sant'Ambrogio is more for locals, while Central Market caters more toward tourists.
Sant'Ambrogio also has clothing and house-hold item vendors. Be careful though, there are a lot of gypsys that will steal from you if you're not careful.
