Best Farmers’ Markets in Tuscany & Umbria

By: Sabrin Hasbun Writer & Journalist | Specialist Food & History

One of the best ways to experience the true heart of Italy, is to visit the local markets. These weekly and monthly gatherings sell everything and anything, from seasonal produce to artisanal clothing and homeware. 

We have put together a list of the best daily, weekly, and monthly markets in Tuscany and Umbria. If you have any questions, speak to your villa manager or directly to our concierge team. We also recommend keeping an eye on the markets of Campagna Amica — a foundation that promotes the value of Italian agriculture and protection of the land and environment.
