You might recall that the city of Rome closed the popular farmer’s market near Circo Massimo in February 2017.
The closure came with no warning and no plan. The stall owners were simply informed that they could no longer sell anything in the space on Via San Teodoro.
Needless to say, there was a small uproar.
The market was temporarily relocated to Auditorium Parco della Musica, but that was short lived and really far from the original location in the center of Rome.
Now good news has arrived with little warning – the farmer’s market at Circo Massimo is reopening! Like, RIGHT NOW. (Heads up that the link is in Italian).
Well, technically it is reopening for a preview at 9:30 am on Friday October 6th. Part of the city’s justification for refusing to renew the market’s permit to operate was that the space was in need of renovations. The preview day will focus on taking a look on these updates to the space.
From here on out, the farmer’s market will be open every weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. (This is by far my favorite Sunday market option in the city).
During the winter (from November 1st – April 30th), the market is open from 8 am – 3 pm.
During the summer (from May 1st – October 31st), the market is open 8 am – 7 pm.
Hope to see there – eating well and supporting the producers!
