Mercato Centrale : Florence, Italy

One of the first things that attracted our attention when looking through the tour guide on Florence was not the museums with famous sculptures or artwork, it was Mercato Centrale, an indoor market, centered on food, much like our beloved Philadelphia's Reading Terminal Market.  

But sorry RTM, as soon as we started walking through the larger market, our loyalty began to sway.  Stands upon stands of fresh produce, cheese, seafood, meat, pastries, pasta, etc. welcomed us.   

Heck.  Frick'n. Yes.

If we moved to Florence, we'd opt for a place, specifically within walking distance from this market.
