Testaccio Market

Located near the MACRO Museum in the earth of the Testaccio district, this covered market is the modern version of the former Testaccio food market, that was situated some hundred meters far.

The place is different, but the butchers, grocers and fishmongers are the same.

Here everything is new and bright but, still, everything reminds you of decades ago, when everything seemed more authentic and fresher.

We think it’s the best combination of tradition and modernity. The best food market in Rome? We reckon so.

Isn’t Rome itself bearing this combination, perhaps?

Testaccio Organic Food Market

At the Città dell’Altra Economia complex in Testaccio, some hundred meters far from the previous market, every Sunday from 09.00 ’till dusk you can find organic food from the hand of the farmers from all over the Lazio region.

Trastevere Market

Trastevere, the most characteristic neighborhood in Rome has its own food market in a beautiful square, Piazza San Cosimato, since early 1900. Most of the sellers descend from the former vendors (talking about heritage!).

Among all the best food markets in Rome, this is a must!

Searching for some quality food for you pets perhaps? There’s also a stall for them!

Esquilino Roman & Ethnic Food Market

We promised you an authentic Roman experience, we know that.

But we live in a globalized World and is all about sharing, or at least it should be:

sharing knowledge, tradition and therefor food.

The Esquilino Food Market is the spaciest place in Rome, the most cosmopolitan where Roman traditions meet the rest of the World. Isn’it nice? Isn’t it tasty? 😉

Circus Maximus Farmers Market

Looking for the best food markets in Rome during the weekend?

Every Saturday and Sunday there is this covered market next to Circus Maximus.

It was a former jewish fish waste market, now it’s more a fruit and vegetables market, from the producers to the costumers as well as all the other markets we mentioned.
