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
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.
Valmelaina market (which has retained its name despite moving to the indoor facility in Via Giovanni Conti since November 2001) is well known for its excellent value for money. The “everything for one thousand” in the era of local currency lira has turned in “everything for less than one euro” and so wandering among the stalls you can really find oranges for 80 cents per kilogram, apples for 50 cents
