My market odyssey continues during various trips throughout Italy.

The magical city of Florence has a wealth of impressive markets including the Central Market. Butchers, fishmongers and delis are on the main floor, while fruit and vegetable sellers are on the top floor,

Colourful soaps in every colour and perfume beguile the grimy travellers while pasta comes in every shape and size.

These stacks of crates are bursting at the seams with a tasty looking selection of fruit, veg and herbs.

Strings of garlic adorn this rustic stall while herbs, goose grease and salad leaves offer us a ideal photo opp.

Sieves, baskets and booze jostle for position on this compact and crowded little stall.
