The Heart of Rome: Circo Massimo Farmers Market

In the heart of Rome, between the Roman foro and the Bocca della Verità, stands the Campagna Amica market at the Circo Massimo, in Via di San Teodoro 74: a meeting point between producer and consumer. The market is located exactly in the place where the legend tells that the she-wolf found Romulus and Remus. The place of Roman agriculture in the oldest site of the city!​ There are over 60 farms with products for direct sale at zero km, guaranteed, safe and of quality, grown or reared directly by the producers present behind the counters. Inside are the “Seals of Campagna Amica,” products saved from extinction thanks to the work of farmers such as the cannellino bean from Atina, the pepper from Pontecorvo, the lentil from Onano and the Caciofiore from Columella, a cook from the ancient Rome. In the market there is a wide selection of fruit and vegetables, cheeses, oil, fish, bread and baked goods, cereals, flours and pasta, legumes, fresh meat, cured meats, honey, preserves, fresh milk, plants and flowers and much else. Every Saturday and Sunday, the Agrichefs offer always new dishes cooked according to tradition. You can eat in the external courtyard where food trucks prepare typical street dishes: fried fish, vegetable soups, sandwiches with porchetta and grilled meat. In addition, the Campagna Amica market offers activities dedicated to young and old, with educational workshops, show cooking, tastings and exhibitions of typical foods. There is no shortage of charity initiatives such as that of the Suspended Spending, an aid for all people with economic difficulties. The heart of Rome is rich in flavours, tradition and attention for the environment.
