A great place to buy Pecorino Romano, Parmigiano Reggiano or another Italian cheese to take back home with you. There's also a lovely café in the second building of the market, the one with the inner courtyard, with great coffee and pastries at very moderate prices.

Well, I tried to give this a go because my family loves markets, but we were not able to make it. First we went to the dry goods/non-food market which was horrible. Mostly cheap tennis shoes and jeans. Then when we tried to find the food market building, we walked up to an alley that did not look safe and... More

This is the largest market in Rome bringing small vendors under the same roof. Many of the products here are from the nearby areas and all fresh, at reasonable prices. My favorite tomatoes, datterini -similar to the plum tomato and probably the best tasting ones anywhere, for example, are sold here at 2.5 euro/kg while supermarkets will sell them at... More

Too lazy to cook, but if was inclined this market has all I want. Good old fashion market. Seafood section very good. No need to go anyplace else. The clothes area was too eastern for my taste.

I happened upon this market yesterday. It is huge, and sells everything fresh. Meat counter, fish counters, fruit, vegetable and ethnic food are all there and more than just one vendor for each. Bought quail eggs and a chunk of delicious local bread for 3 euros. Will be back there every time I am in Rome!

You don`t need to buy anything, but if you want to have a look at a Roman market place for food to, you should go in the morning. All kinds of food, expecially fresh fish and vegetables.

Fresh food of all kinds. Not just italian food but also asian and middle eastern food can be found in this market. The prices may be different for the same kind of food so look good for the best deal.

The Nuovo Mercato Esquilino, a huge indoor market of vegetables, meat and seafood products, is just near the Roma Termini train station. The three ladies of our five person group -- no doubt with an implied glance at dusty museums -- pronounced a visit there "great" and "the real vacation", bringing back to our rented flat enough raw material to...

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
