Greetings from Florence. 

Today I took a very long walk to the Il Mercato delle Cascine, an outdoor market full of locally produced veggies, fresh cheese, meats, leather shoes, handbags, Italian made clothing, straw bags and things you did not know you needed. 

I spent there a few hours and was in total awe at what could be found at mostly reasonable prices, the best part is that most people there were locals, so it was a real cultural immersion. 

An important note to self: open only on Tuesdays and they only accept cash.

What was the last outdoor market you attended? What did you buy?

Love the detail on the bottom of that dress!
And that sounds fun! Sadly we weren't in Florence on Tuesday, haha!! We walked through a few outdoor markets while in Italy and Greece but didn't buy anything at them

Sounds like a great market and I love the lace on your dress, such a fun detail :)

Hope you're having a great week :) So hot here, felt like summer today even though it's only spring!

It's been such a long time since I've visited an outdoor market - they have them in several places where I live but I can never seem to make it to one.

I think I might have walked through that square! It looks really familiar.

I love the lace dress, especially that lovely hat!

I don't go to markets - I don't like the crowds.
