The city’s busiest tourist street market is a fun place to pick up T-shirts, marbleized paper, or a city souvenir. Leather wallets, purses, bags, and jackets are another popular purchase—but be sure to assess the quality of the workmanship, and haggle for your life. The market runs daily; watch out for pickpockets. In 2014 it was controversially ejected from part of its traditional home, in Piazza San Lorenzo, and now spreads around Piazza del Mercato Centrale; whether it will ever move back is as yet undecided.
