my Firenze favorite

While searching for a guidebook-recommended trattoria for lunch, we accidentally stumbled upon a daily market in front of the Santa Maria Novella Church .  Willing to improvise, we noticed each awning-covered stand was selling fresh cheeses, meats, desserts, and Italian delicacies.  We took our time scouting out and sampling all the stalls before deciding our game plan for lunch. 

Splitting a made-to-order panini sandwich and olives bought in bulk, we sat in the middle of the square with locals on their lunch break.  Before leaving, we filled a sack with cookies to munch on, while wondering across the Ponte Vecchio to explore more of the city.  Our snap decision made for our best meal in Florence!
