Tourists strolling through Rome are often pleasantly surprised to run into small neighborhood markets. Even if you aren't looking to buy fruit and vegetables, they can be fun to visit. Many have fresh squeezed juice or some fast take-away meals.

Many have fresh squeezed juice or some fast take-away meals.

Here is a list of six neighborhood markets in Rome to be sure to check out:

Campo dei Fiori

The Campo dei Fiori flower market covers one of Rome's most colorful squares: under the stern gaze of the statue of Giordano Bruno, the heretic burned at the stake here in the 17th century, during the day, stalls of fruit, vegetables, and flowers wind through the square.

In the evening, it is hopping with nightlife with its many popular restaurants and bars.

Hours: from Monday to Saturday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Testaccio

You can visit the Testaccio market when it's hot or raining too: under a contemporary covered structure, there are about a hundred stalls selling fruit, meat, clothes, household items, and street food.

Hours: from Monday to Saturday from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm.

Underneath it are the archaeological remains of an ancient Roman warehouse that can be visited during special open day events.

Trionfale

The Trionfale market, between the Ottaviano and Cipro metro stops, is right by the Vatican. It has been in the new covered location since 2009, losing none of its authentic market feel. It is Rome's largest neighborhood market, and one of the largest in Europe, it has over 270 stalls.

Some are handed down from generation to generation! You'll find vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, and household goods, and some real gems: Ariccia roast pork, organic foods, eggs and honey at Peppino's, here since 1924!

Hours: from Monday to Saturday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm. Tuesday and Friday til 7.00 pm.

The next post will cover Piazza San Cosimato, the Esquilino market and the little-known market of Parioli
