With an assortment of different Florentine food markets to choose from throughout the city, there are many opportunities to learn about the culinary traditions of Tuscan Cuisine. It is Tuscan tradition to use only fresh, high quality ingredients in everything they produce, from their wine and oils to cheese and delicious desserts. Tuscan food is extremely seasonal. In early november, the olive harvest starts, which is anticipated by all natives. Likewise, the wine we drink here in Florence is produced with love and hard work out in the countryside, mainly from Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano. By shopping around food markets in the city, you can find better quality food and wine for lower prices, while learning more about the Tuscan culture.
