History and description
The Mercato Trionfale has existed since the late 19th century and is Rome’s largest daily market. The market consists of 273 stalls and has been in its current location in a glass construction in the Via Doria since 2009.
The market is divided into colors. Stalls selling fruit and vegetables are green, red indicates meat sales and blue is for fish traders.
The stalls that have been licensed the longest are in the central hall, which one faces when entering through the main entrance.
Vegetable and fruit traders are mostly in the back area.
There is space for not only food but also clothes, shoes, toys, Christmas decorations and much more.
When the Mercato Trionfale first opened, it was still located in the Viale Giulio Cesare, in a part of town that, despite its proximity to the Vatican, was actually still pretty much countryside.
