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.
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”.
Piazza Epiro market is just one of the historical local markets in town. Like many other Roman markets, in the last few years it has gone through a deep transformation among criticism and controversy but also with some positive feedback.
