Attraction details
Reviewed 7 May 2014

A great place to visit if you are a fan of markets. In particular there is a very large range of fresh foodstuffs. Vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, Olives, olive oil, bread and other baked goods, smallgoods, etc. You can even buy bulk wine and they will sell you the plastic containers to take it away. In addition there is the range of household goods, clothes, shoes, hats, flowers and plants.

Lots of activity and colour – great for photography.

We rented a small flat nearby and were thrilled to find this marked. We went here every morning and bought all the food we needed. Lots of products not only food, but lots of food to choose from and specialities from various places in Italy. Excellent quality and excellent value. Remember to bring small change and don't expect that 20 og 50 Euro bills are popular when you buy products for a couple of Euros. Nicely airconditioned and good opening hours compared til similar fresh food markets.

With this amazing market as your neighborhood grocery, you will do a lot of happy cooking. And when you're not cooking, you can eat this fresh food from many of the local restaurants in the neighborhood. Multiple fresh fish vendors with local catch, butchers of fresh meat, and vendors of dried meat, and homemade pasta, and bread, and all manner of vegetables and fruits, and and and... Such a bounty.

We found this on our walk around Prati after having spend a few hours at the Vatican Museums. It was such a nice experience that we came back a few days later to buy food and wine before going back home. The value and quality of the food is extraordinary! You can never get this back home in Denmark to the same price!

Here you can buy everything Italian! Pasta, Salami, Ham, Local wine, Nuts - you name it!
If you are around this area I suggest you take a peek inside, but I can't promise you won't leave with your hands full of delicious products.

I can't cook worth two cents so places like this and Whole Foods in the States do not impress me. We rented an apartment near the Vatican, and went here to buy eggs, veggies, meats, breads, etc. We tried to buy eggs from one vendor, but he said he didn't have change for 20 euros?!? Most Italian people looked uncomfortable or cautious because we did not speak a lick of Italian nor did they speak English since most tourists don't come here. The only vendors who were at ease and not stiff were the Indian/Bangladeshi vendors since they understood us. We spent 30 euros on groceries. Hello, that is a whole lot just for eggs, milk, strawberries, mushrooms, potatoes, bacon, and bread! $45? Come on. For the rest of the trip we went to a Conad supermarket 3 to 5 times!
