If you love genuine food and even on vacation you like to try your hand at cooking, or if you are simply curious to know the more popular side of the place you are visiting, there is nothing better than going to the local markets. Here are the most famous of Rome:
Campo de ‘Fiori
Here you can buy fruit, legumes and fish in the heart of the oldest medieval square in the city. Located in the historic center, among all the markets of Rome it is certainly the most touristic.
The new Testaccio market
Gastronomic center par excellence and meeting point for gourmets, the Testaccio is the historic covered food market in the capital. The combination of traditional stalls with “food court” dining areas has made it a real attraction.
Farmers Market at the Circus Maximus
Open only on weekends, it is housed in the ancient Jewish fish market, a few steps from the Circus Maximus. Here you can be sure to find only high quality products coming exclusively from Lazio. Excellent reference for a pleasant and genuine outdoor lunch break!
