Best shops in Florence for food and wine

Jump to last reply

With all there is to see, and little time in Florence for shopping, I was wondering if this group's expertise might help to compile a listing of the best shops for food items and wines. I have an upcoming trip with a large bag, and a very short time in Florence. Rather than rushing around to find shops, I am hoping for a list of the best - those "don't miss" locations. I am sure we would all rather find a couple of places where we can relax and take time spending euros for those great things you just can't get here in the states (or such a good deal you just can't pass them up!)

On our last trip to Florence we did most of our shopping at two sites:

1) Mercato Centrale - can't remember the specific vendor - Parmigiano Reggiano, porcini mushrooms, dried fruit - all vacuum packed for the trip home.

2) Pegna "supermarket" near the Duomo - olive oil, black truffle sauce, more cheese (gorgonzola) and wine.

So, any thoughts on the best shopping locations, enotecas that you have experienced in Florence - for foods and wines?
