Fresh vegetables, fruits, cheeses, ham, salami and much more. Super nice to visit on a nice day, having a cup off coffee in the cafe just around the corner.

Lovely little piazza in Trastevere, home to a small market (a few permanent stalls selling meat, fish, etc. and temporary stalls with fruit and vegetables), a magnificent old tree, and a terrific playground. The playground has several climbing forts with slides and other things to...More

The market here is great and better than Campo di fiori as its not so crowded - seems more residential with families and kids playing. Also a Great spot during summers for the outdoor movies.

As part of the piazza is a playground which many local children were playing at. Our 2yo son loved playing in the park on the slides, rides and toys that people had donated. It's a great facility for families staying in the area (which I'd...More

The square is well known for its food outdoor market, with lot of seasonal fruits and vegetables. It is a colorful and lively place, a true heart of the friendly neighborhood of Trastevere!

I took a walk early in the morning at Trastevere & found the San Cosimato Market which is a market for the locals. The products are very good & fresh & the people are very nice. This is the true true Rome.

Multi-use piazza.... kids playgrounds, kiosks and market shops (vegetables, meat...fish) Always crowded and lovely. Most important it is away from the touristic Rome.

We've stayed in an apartment on this piazza, and will again later this year. If you want a real neighborhood with plenty of local people and all the requisite shopping for city life, this is it. If, however, you want to be in the heart...More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable

Trastevere supermarkets, bakeries and budget-ish eateries (10 Replies)
Greetings, My 18yo daughter and her friend have just booked a 'last-minute' trip to Rome. They will be staying at a B&B on Piazza San Cosimato in Trastevere. Unfortunately, it has been quite a few years since I was in Rome so I thought I would turn to those who live in Rome or who have more recent experiences. I would appreciate recommendations regarding 'authentic' (less obviously oriented to the tourist market) reasonably-priced retaurants in the Trastevere area. Something...More

There's a good bakery on Via della Lungaretta, just off Viale Trastevere. I don't know the name (google maps calls it La Panetteria Romana e Spaccio di Paste, I just knew it as my corner bakery when I lived in the neighborhood) but it's at #31, on the corner of Piazza del Drago. Trip Advisor has it under the same name here: tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g187791-d3…

Grocery shopping in Trastevere (5 Replies)
Staying in an apartment on Piazza San Cosimato in Trastevere beginning April. Is there a grocery store nearby to stock up on items such as breakfast cereals, milk etc? Will get fruit etc from the daily food market on the Piazza. Many thanks
