Where can you do your supermarket shopping in Florence? Well due to Florence’s size you will not find large malls or big department store in the city center but we do have our mini version of them.

Outside the city center you’ll also find bigger supermarkets and stores for your van-stuffing-shopping session!  One little suggestion here: you are in Florence and at least for another few years small Salumerie, Panificerie, Macellerie, Latterie, Negozi di Ortaggi e Frutta will keep their business open although strangled by Globalization economy (too long of a topic to even mention any further), give them a try until you can.

Supermercato Coop written COOP is a large chain of supermarkets that has also very large super store *mall like* size, you might want to rent a car or take a taxi if you need to do some serious shopping.
