Rome - Outdoor Markets

Markets in Rome are as old as time. Today in the United States fresh seasonal organic locally grown fruits and vegetables are a real luxury. In Italy and in Rome it is part of La Dolce Vita - access to locally grown fresh organic fruits and vegetables in neigborhood street markets is the way of life.

While in Rome, be sure to get up in the morning, have an espresso, and then wander to a Roman street market.

Depending on the season you'll find artichokes, zucchini flowers, peppers, tomatoes, etc etc. Taste delicious Roman spices like amatriciana and saffron. Enjoy Italy travel with the street fairs and markets.
