Roma has dozens of markets: from the famous Porta Portese to many small corner markets. We try visit as many as we can, starting from the closest ones, the historical ones, the most important ones… until we’ll visit them all!
In addition to each market’s review you will find two sections: Alice’s wonderland, describing the market through the eyes of a child and Just around the corner, a few tips or places to visit in the neighborhood. Last but not least, a rich photo gallery including some videos of our favorite markets.
Trevi market is the smallest corner market in Rome. Formally there should still be four or five stalls, but practically there is only one managed by Mr. Amato and his family, with the help of the worker Martina.
Trionfale market is considered the first corner market in Rome and with its 273 stalls is the biggest in town, and among the biggest ones in Italy and even in Europe. Open on Giulio Cesare avenue at the end of ‘800, for years it has been a transit spot for those going out of town or hunting and stopped with carriage or horses to refuel. At that time, it was countryside all around.
