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...More

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.

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
