There are dozens of markets in Rome. From the most famous Porta Portese to a number of smaller street markets. We’ll try to review a new one every week, starting from the closer ones, the historical, the most popular ones… looking forward to visiting them all!

Together with every market review you will find two pages: Alice's wonderland, describing the market through the eyes of a little girl, Just around the corner suggesting some points of interest at walking distance from each market and a photo gallery


Navigatori Market

If you want to get an idea of Piazza Navigatori market’s story, the best person to talk to is Mr. Agostino, 83 years old, of which 50 between his fruits and vegetables stall at the market and his land, at Monte Migliore. Three times a week Agostino brings what his land produces, but he’s not the only farmer on the square. Next to him Mario and Patrizio, who are father and son. 

Tuscolano III Market (Quadraro)

 The covered market Tuscolano III in Quadraro neighborhood is sight for sore eyes, with its 120 stalls of all kinds it’s one of the richest markets in Southern Rome. “I own the stall since 1957, we used to stay outside in Lucio Sestio road, then in ’62 we moved in this covered building, but we needed to move out again for its refurbishing. 

Flaminio I Market

The original building hosting Flaminio I market (to distinguish it from Flaminio II, the other covered market in via Guido Reni) belonged to the noble family Ruffo and dates back at the beginning of 1900. At that time, the market used to be in the street of the neighborhood, but when the countess Ruffo left the family warehouses to Rome's City Council, it turned into a covered market.
