The market is just a roof with a portable market of merchendise you see all over florence.
We passed it a lot on the way to somewhere else, but except for the boar statue, there's nothing to see

Mercato Nuovo is setup in small corner between Pizza della Repubblica and the very good Piazza della Signoria. This is a busy foot traffic area so its very possible that you will pass this little market sometime during your stay in Florence. Here you'll find a small collection of booths setup selling some touristy stuff, a few bags, scarfs and the likes, perhaps something you might want to buy as a small souvenir from Florence. We didn't find anything here that was unique or couldn't be found elsewhere in city at other markets or in the shops.

The reason visitors stop here, is not really for the market but for the bronze boar statue situated in the back of this tiny market place. This is famous replica of the boar statue in the Uffizi Museum. Custom has it that if you rub the boar's snout, you will have good luck. This is why the statue snout is so shiny!

The bronze boar statue is of mild interest and worth a few minutes of your time if you are passing this direction between the Doumo area attractions and the Piazza della Signoria attractions. However, we feel the market itself is a pass unless you are late on your souvenir shopping and just need to pick up something before leaving Florence.
