If it was in the city center, I'd say: go for it. But it's not. The market is small, expansive, and no "treasures" to found..

This market is spread relatively on small area but it is truly amazing and great fun. The food stands are just amazing, all types and kinds of fruits, pasta, sweets, sandwiches, fish, meat, and more. The market is vivid and very colorful, it’s very clean too so it’s not noisy and dirty like old markets but yet offer the exact... More

I love visiting farmers markets in different locations, and this market has lots under one roof. It's certainly smaller than some of the other Italian markets, but worth a trip if you're in the area. We had lunch at Cucina Romanesca--our Eat Italy tour guide recommended the sausage with rabe..it was delicious! There's also a little cafe area, so we... More

Take the metro to Piramide station, walk like 10 min. to the covered market. Do NOT miss Mordi & Vai street food and Tania's shoes in box 64-73 Cleanest restrooms ever!

This market has most things under the one roof. It is well laid out and easy to walk around. The stalls include homewares, clothing, bakery and butcher and fish shop, cheeses and flowers. There are also food stalls selling coffee and food. Not too big but probably sufficient for a neighbourhood market.

I am not a local, so I never had the privilege to go to the old market location. I hear that some locals preferred the old one but some like the newer modern amenities of the new market. I don't have anything to compare it with, so in terms of a market I adored it. Super fresh selection of meat,... More

The worst thing the Nuovo Mercato di Testaccio has against it is the memory of the "vecchio" mercato, which existed for decades a few blocks away in the heart of the neighborhood. The old place didn't have running water and it was cramped and overcrowded. But most people, including me, loved it. The new place is much more spacious and... More

Had read about Testaccio Market in travelist Rick Steves. Since we were nearby in Trastevere, and since she in particular enjoys exploring local markets, we gave it a look. Lots of produce, cheeses, meats, fish, flowers, baked goods. Plus kitchenware, clothing, shoes, accessories and crafts. Very well laid out, all under partial shade and protected from the weather. Very clean.... More

We went there for lunch (be aware it closes at 14.00) and had a typical sandwich, pastry for desert and coffee afterwards for 6.00euro in total! Great place to visit and buy last presents before you leave Rome!

Shoes, cheeses, meats, fruit are just some of the goods on display. On the day we visited a bride to be was surprising her groom which added an extra bit of character. There is a small cafe providing snacks and excellent fresh orange juice and coffee. Several guided tours were also present.
