“Best for antiques”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Located in an old factory just behind Piazza del Popolo.
The wares (bags; Dress ext ) are strictly vintage and the vendors are passionate about their merchandise.
Good high quality, beautiful evening dresses from top designers.
looks as a Garage Sales.
A little shop with chairs sell food.
I bought a marble bust of a Roman poet and a Fendi leather bag.

“small but nice”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

All of us found some pieces of clothing back with after-bargained price. So spend your Sunday here for a while to find something good and vintage and probably a luxury brand! Shoes, clothing, jewelry, bags, classic sunglasses, old stuff... it's not a big flea market but it's quite enough to hang around.
opening time: sundays from 10:00 to 19:00, and small entrance fee of 1.6 euros

Make sure to bargain your way. They auotes me some high prices probably since they knew i was a tourist. Saw some fake bags so be careful. Picked up vintage designer jewelry.

“atmospheric flea market in central Rome”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

It's a traditional Sunday pastime with the locals (apart from the summer months when they abandon the city to the heat and the tourists): a morning stroll around one of the numerous antique and flea markets, followed by a leisurely lunch.
This market, mostly outdoors but with two covered areas, charges a modest entrance fee (EUR1.60) and perhaps it's thanks to this that it's not as frightfully crowded as some off the others.
There's a great variety of goods on offer: mostly clothes, shoes and accessories, with several stalls selling antique and designer jewellery; but also old books and prints, military medals, luggage, china and glassware, sunglasses, perfume and cosmetics, toys, and even some furniture.
In the middle of it all is a small cafe where a few men sit contentedly reading their newspaper - presumably while they wait for their wives or girlfriends to finish their shopping.
There are no stalls selling cheap plastic horrors, discounted household detergents or kake designer bags, and I never got any whiff of mustiness when rummaging through the clothes, as sometimes happens in such places, in fact it's quite clean, with no rubbish lying around.
The sellers are generally quite happy to let you touch and try things on, and I didn't experience or see any pushiness.
I did notice several extravagantly elegant older ladies, bargaining in regal style. The atmosphere is convivial and relaxed.
Some stallholders clearly mark their wares' prices, many don't, but prices are so reasonable I didn't even attempt to bargain for my few purchases: brand new Swarowski earrings in their original box for EUR20, a set of five purple glass champagne glasses for EUR10, an owl charm bracelet for EUR5... I didn't buy the EUR300 Hermes handbag, but the seller did have the genuine certificate so it definitely was a real bargain in its way too.
It might become a habit, but at least it won't be an expensive one!

“Great Vintage Finds”
Reviewed 17 June 2011

This great little market is an especially good spot for picking up vintage clothing and accessories. There are also a number of vendors selling vintage household items and nifty little things. The emphasis seems to be mostly on clothing, however.

I've gone a couple of times in the last month and was delighted to buy a 1970's orange leather and lucite purse. It cost me around 35 euros, but I didn't even attempt to bargain, so I probably could have got it for less.

Another vendor I really like sells vintages ties and scarves... and even pocket squares and ascots... all mostly by high end designers. I bought an Armani scarf here for 25 euros.

It's a great market for those who can't drag themselves out of bed too early - since it goes until 7PM. There is an admission charge of just under 2 euros. They also have a very clean and well stocked restroom and a little cafe. Forget trying to use the filthy restroom at the Flaminio Burger King down the street and come here instead and get in a little shopping while you're at it :)
