Farmers' Market: Campagna Amica
On Saturdays and Sundays (from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.), there is a wonderful regional market near the Circus Maximus that operates on the principle of “km 0”. Meaning, the food sold here is sourced from the region with virtually 0 km of delivery distance.
“Campagna Amica” brings together local farmers who sell their produce here, which they would typically sell directly from their farms. You can buy baked goods, fruits, vegetables, spreads, pestos, jams, oils, and much more at this market and…
Here comes a great tip: Enjoy all of this with a picnic at the Circus Maximus or in the orange garden!
If you would rather not have a picnic, you can also eat your purchased food in the courtyard of the market!
The “Campagna Amica” market also exists near the Appia Antica and is called “Mercato Fonte Acqua Egeria” (Parco Appia Antica di Roma, Via dell’Almone, 111, Roma). This market is open only on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. except in August, when it remains closed for the entire month.
