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
Olympic Village Market
Since the end of the Eighties in the streets behind Coni building towards the Olympic Village, just a few steps away from Renzo Piano’s Auditorium and Pier Luigi Nervi’s building, there is a market dedicated to vintage and products in “stock” every Friday morning. Ladies looking for cheap designer clothes, shoes or second hand clothing come here from the northern side of Rome, but, as of today, in times of crisis, they actually come from all over Rome and even from out of town
Corviale Farmers’ market
In the former covered marketarea in Corviale, abandoned for years, about two and a half years ago started the third farmers’ market in Rome, after San Teodoro’s one and the one moved from ex-Mattatoio to Passino in Garbatella neighborhood
After having escaped the risk of being demolished to make room for a shopping center, the covered market Trieste (named after the neighborhood) and its sellers can now take a breath and someone even dares to open a new stall, such as the one dedicated to dried fruits and olives.
