When I first moved to Italy I went to the Mercato Centrale (Central Market) every day to learn the language, meet the locals, and experience the saying "Cibo è Cultura" ("Food is Culture"). Join me for a tour of this market and see the beating heart of Livorno and Tuscany.

Derek is very easy to communicate with and very passionate about the great products that can be found in the central market of Livorno. He is familiar with all the do's and dont's when it comes to shopping te best ingredients for a home cooked Italian meal. We tasted several samples of cheese, vegetables and wine. At the end of the tour Derek arranged a lovely mini-picknick in the central market.
